Letter from Henry M. Morfit to James Curtis Booth, August 12, 1850


Book Summary

Henry M. Morfit (1793-1865) sends James Curtis Booth (1810-1888) a copy of a long letter sent to Thomas Corwin (1794-1865), Secretary of the Treasury, which outlines the refining process developed by Booth and Morfit's son, Campbell Morfit (1820-1897), and offers it for consideration. Morfit, a claims lawyer in Washington, D.C. and a political figure in the Andrew Jackson presidential administrations, appears to have served as go-between for his son, Campbell and Booth in their efforts to interest the U.S. Mint in their process for refining gold.
