Handwritten sentiment signed 3 years before his death
Autograph Sentiment signed: "Yours Truly,/R.J. Gatling/Hartford, Conn. Augt 25/90.", 3½x2½ card. 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. He signed this card at age 82, three years before his death. Ink transfer at upper margin. On verso, mounting remnants (no show through). Overall, fine condition.
