Description

These words were spoken by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in his first "fireside chat" to the people of the United States on March 12, 1933. In announcing an end to the bank holiday he had proclaimed six days earlier, President Roosevelt was exhorting the people to remain calm and avoid the panicked withdrawals that had crippled the nation's banking system in the first months of 1933.
