    Description

    English- Made Carbon Water Filter in Case. Another device designed to help the soldier purify water, this imported filter is in its original circular tole tin case. On the top is a small carrying ring and a 1 ¼" brass plate which is embossed "H. Atkins & Co. Patent/Molded/Carbon/Filter/62 Fleet St London." Still remaining inside is the circular piece of molded, porous charcoal which has a small threaded metal tube projecting from the top into which a drinking hose (now missing) would have been connected. The case is 3 ½" in diameter and the condition is sound with the japanned finish showing age and a repair to a small section of the charcoal. Scratched into the opposite side of the case is the name "Waygood" and possibly an initial "M". It appears that only one soldier with that last name, Thomas Waygood, a private in the 97th Pa. Vol. Infantry, served in the Union Army during the war.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
