4032. INVENTIONS, Felier Hydraulique.—

I am thankful to you for the trouble
you have taken in thinking of the felier hydraulique.
To be put in motion by the same
power which was to continue the motion was
certainly wanting to that machine, as a better
name still is. I would not give you the trouble
of having a model made, as I have workmen
who can execute from the drawing.—
To Robert Fulton. Washington ed. v, 517.
