Through a letter his wife was writing to her sister, Grant urged Corbin to have nothing to do with Gould and Fisk, and he promptly arranged a meeting with Boutwell.
On Thursday, September 23, Gould visited Corbin's house and was informed of Julia's letter, which had arrived that day. After reading it and discovering that Grant was annoyed with his speculations, Gould knew he was very likely to sell gold on Friday.
Corbin, I am undone if that letter gets out". Sensing bribery, Grant immediately ordered the paintings and statues boxed up and returned. On September 23, Grant and Boutwell met and the two decided to break the Gold Ring by selling gold from the treasury if the gold price continued to rise.

Roosevelt issued a presidential proclamation proclaiming Thanksgiving to be the fourth Thursday in November rather than the last Thursday, meaning in some years one week earlier, in order to lengthen the Christmas shopping season. Other companies followed with "Black Friday in July" deals which were as good as, or better than, those in November. For many years, retailers pushed opening times on Black Friday earlier and earlier, eventually reaching midnight, before opening on the evening of Thanksgiving.
In , Kmart opened at 7: Two years later, a number of retailers began opening at 8: In subsequent years, other stores have followed this trend, opening earlier and earlier on Thanksgiving Day, or remaining open all day, beginning in the early morning hours. Some online stores invest a lot of money in promo campaigns to generate more sales and drive traffic to their stores.

In recent years, some retailers including Walmart , Target , OfficeMax , Big Lots , and Staples have claimed that the advertisements they send in advance of Black Friday and the prices included in those advertisements are copyrighted and are trade secrets.
Some of these retailers have used the take-down system of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act as a means to remove the offending price listings. This policy may come from the fear that competitors will slash prices, and shoppers may comparison shop.
The actual validity of the claim that prices form a protected work of authorship is uncertain as the prices themselves though not the advertisements might be considered a fact in which case they would not receive the same level of protection as a copyrighted work. While some sites have complied with the requests, others have either ignored the threats or simply continued to post the information under the name of a similar-sounding fictional retailer.
However, careful timing may mitigate the take-down notice. The court dismissed the case, ruling that only the third-party posters of the advertisements, and not the ISP itself, would have standing to sue the retailers.
