Patent No. 497,781 dated May 23, 1893. The letter states "The invention relates to the class of machine or battery guns known as Gatling guns, in which the barrels and locks are grouped about a central shaft around which they revolve in loading and firing, the object being to provide such a gun with a simple ejecting mechanism for aiding the extractors in removing the exploded cartridges, insuring a better extraction and increasing the efficiency and durability of the lock and extractor, and also to provide a simple means for admitting and holding a cooling liquid in the case for preventing overheating of the barrels during operation. Referring to the accompanying drawings, where the invention is illustrated as applied to a gun of this class having ten barrels." The patent has three pages of drawings showing the Gatling improvements along with three pages of specifications. The three pages of drawings have Richard J. Gatling, Harry R. Williams, Atty and two witness signatures at the bottom. The pages are bound with a blue/green ribbon having an embossed red United States of America seal on the bottom left corner of the front page. Overall condition is fine with slight yellowing and cracking along the top edges of the front and rear pages showing two faint fold lines on the pages
