4029. INVENTIONS, Copying press.—

When I was in England, I formed a portable copying press on the principle of the large one
they make here[Paris] for copying letters.
I had a model made there, and it has answered
perfectly. A workman here has made several
from that model. * * * You must do me the
favor to accept of one.—
To William Carmichael. Washington ed. ii, 81. Ford ed., iv, 347.
