I had hoped to have an update on the third Mint Supervisor, Robert M. McAlpin, but that information has proven to be so elusive that I cannot yet present a solid picture of his tenure.
Along the way I stumbled across a Congressional Committee report from 1842 that I thought I would document while searching for more on McAlpin. I honestly don't remember if I found this or Roger B. did, but it is interesting for sure and I will gladly give Roger credit.
There are some amazing similarities between this report, the Financial Panic of 1837, and watching Washington today.
Enjoy and hopefully I am back on track for monthly updates http://www.1881o.com/2021-03.html
