Congress, also, extended credit to buyer for eight more years. Still while being in economic panic and the shortage of currency made by citizens, the government hoped that with the time extension, the economy would improve.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from a place so called, probably either the one in Oxfordshire, which is named from Old English hēan, the weak dative case of hēah ‘high’ (originally used after a preposition and article), + Old English tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’, or the one in Somerset, which is from Old English henn ‘hen’ (perhaps a byname) + tūn. The surname, however, is now most common in Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire, and could be a variant of Hinton .
