changed name to Merwin & Simpkins, to Merwin-Taylor & Simpkins and to Merwin, Hulbert & Co. all in the same year of 1868

In 1861 they advertised in Harper's and Leslie's Weekly

"A new cartridge revolver, carrying six bullets (80 to the pound)" at $12. No further specification was made. It is believed that this was the gun made by Daniel Moore. However, this guns were a seven shot and not a six shot revolver. This very likely relationship lasted until January 11, 1862 when Merwin & Bray advertised in the Harper's Weekly

"PRESCOTT'S CARTRIDGE ROVOLVERS
