REVIEWING THE REVIEW 

   Regarding Doug Ball's criticisms of  the Morgan book, 
   Texan Fred Reed writes: "With all due respect to Douglas, 
   his own work is flawed, too.   He seemed much more 
   interested in having a twit and promoting himself than in 
   dealing with Jim's serious research. 

   Jim Morgan went to Oklahoma State University,  not the 
   University of Oklahoma, as could easily be ascertained by 
   actually READING Jim's book.  This may make little 
   difference to the erudite New Yorker, but as an Okie 
    "them's fighting words" in these parts. 

   I knew Jim quite well.  We went to graduate school 
   together, and when I was News Editor at Coin World we 
   published his work there, too.  By the way, for the 
   bibliophiles in the audience,  I own Jim's actual thesis, 
   autographed to me. 

   I believe the "graybacks" in the title was the "effort" of the 
   publisher, not Jim." 

   [Editor's note:  Dr. Ball's review was not reprinted in its 
   entirety.  He also noted: "there are some very interesting 
   chapters on the Oklahoma Indians and their monetary 
   relations with the Confederacy and themselves and there 
   are some useful chapters on state note issues."]
