1817 MINT REPORT  

   From the 1817 report of Mint Director R. Patterson to 
   President James Madison:  "The repairs of the Mint, which 
   you were pleased to authorize, are now nearly completed. A 
   substantial brick building has been erected on the site formerly 
   occupied by an old wooden building; and in the apparatus and 
   arrangement of machinery, which have been adopted, many 
   important improvements have been introduced.  Among these 
   is the substitution of a steam-engine, for the horse-power 
   heretofore employed.  A change which it is believed, will not 
   only diminish the expenses of the establishment, but greatly 
   facilitate all its principal operations."
