King Solomon's Mines

An interesting Quartermain coincidence?

On St. Michel:  "Alexander St. Michel (S. Pepys father-in-law) . . .  In 1667 he petitioned the king, asserting that he had discovered King Solomon's 
gold and silver mines, and the Diary ... contains a curious commentary 
upon these visions of wealth:--"

I am not clear on the Pepys/Quarterman connection ó but the book 
King Solomonís Mines  (by British writer H. R. Haggard) has a jungle-exploring protagonist who goes by the name of Alan Quartermain. The book is one in a series of Quartermain adventures.

Thank you for all the interesting additions to the Quarterman Family 
web site,
