1881-O Back in Motion

Post by HawkeEye » Fri Nov 27, 2020 4:18 pm

Well after an absence of a few months I am ready to get back to work. I will probably take things at a more measured pace going forward, but will update and post as I have progress to report.

For December I continued with the study of the Mint Directors with the second, Joseph M. Kennedy. This is some fascinating reading as it gives us some insight into not only the Mint but the life and times in the 1840s in New Orleans.

Glad to be back and hope this is good reading for everyone.

Thanks and glad to return. Just needed a little break after years of working on the 1881-O.

I forgot to call to everyone's attention the little note in the writeup on the Kennedy party:
"but the Kennedys, who gave this one, were a power in the social world at that time—and ambitious beyond their means."

So we might have some hint about living in the Mint, but also the use of the Mint employees at the ball.
