KEN BRESSETT WRITES 

   In response to last week's E-Sylum, "Red Book" editor Ken 
   Bressett writes:  "Thanks for another great issue of E-Sylum. It 
   just keeps getting better each week and is always something to 
   look forward to each Monday. Your dedication and work is 
   very much appreciated. 

   Peter and Donna Jones were two of the nicest people in all of 
   the numismatic world.  The comments about her hospitality and 
   entertaining were not exaggerated.  Unfortunately I lost contact 
   with them some years ago, but I would like to send Donna a 
   note of sympathy. Can you or anyone supply an address? 
   (Editor's note: Paul Withers has received several such requests; 
   Donna Jones has recently moved, and Paul is working to find 
   her new address). 

   To Tom DeLorey's request for info on an early auction of 
   patterns,  I can offer the following:  There was an auction on 
   Wednesday,  May 30th, 1860 by Leonard & Co, of Boston, 
   Mass. that contained several lots of patterns all described as 
   such.  Many were 1859 varieties, others went back to Gobrecht 
   dollars of 1838. It is interesting to note that Feuchtwanger pieces 
   were included.  One lot is described as "full set of 1858 Pattern 
   Cents,  proofs, 12 varieties." 

   Thanks for your kind words about "The Fantastic 1804 Dollar" 
   book. Somehow the coin continues to get more fantastic with 
   each passing year."
