Letter from Henry M. Morfit to James Curtis Booth, October 2, 1850

(1850)


Book Summary

Henry M. Morfit (1793-1865) and James Curtis Booth (1810-1888) have their application for a refining patent accepted, but the remuneration offered is less than expected. 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 Morfit (1820-1897), and Booth in their efforts to interest the U.S. Mint in their process for refining gold.
