BOWERS DRAFT AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW 

   Dave Bowers has made a few chapters from the draft of 
   his upcoming book available for comment by NBS 
   members and E-Sylum subscribers.  The book is 
   prospectively titled "The History of the Gold Rush as 
   Illustrated by Treasures from the S.S. Central America" 

   The chapters are available for review on the NBS web 
   site.  Go to http://www.coinbooks.org/, then choose 
   the new  "Research" link. 

   Of special interest to E-Sylum readers is the information 
   on Ezekiel I. Barra, who was discussed in previous issues. 
   Bowers also notes: "Another numismatist, Philadelphia 
   physician Lewis Roper (whose coins were auctioned in 
   1851) is said to have been part of the Gold Rush, and to 
   have been lost at sea - but I have not included him as I 
   cannot find a lost ship sunk in 1850 on its way back from 
   California (or the Panama connection) that might be a 
   candidate." 

   Please send any comments to Dave by October 30, 
   2000, as the project is nearing completion.
