RICHARD J. GATLING. ALS: "R.J. Gatling", 1p, 4¼x7½. Hartford, Conn., 1878 April 29. To A.M. Irving, Esq. In full: "I am in receipt of your favor of the 24th inst. and cheerfully comply with your request." By the 1850s, Gatling had become wealthy from agricultural inventions such as machines for sowing rice and wheat. He is best known for inventing the rapid-fire Gatling gun, the first practical machine gun, patented in 1862. After his second patent for improvements of the gun in 1865, he contracted its manufacture to the Colt Patent Fire Arms Manufacturing Co. in Hartford, Connecticut. Rectangular shading at lower blank margin (2-inches x ½-inch). Slight shading (3x3-inches) at upper left touches some text. Nailhead-size red stain at blank upper right edge. Lightly creased, slightly soiled.
