Catalogue Note

Accompanied by the inventor’s description:

“This machine...is intended to raise water from a spring well or Reservoir to any convenient height...to run...eight hours by once winding up so as with very little Labor to supply families, distilleries, tin yards; or other manufactories with a small but continued stream of water without interfering much with the Labor required for other business.”
