4035. INVENTIONS, Pedometer.—

I
send your pedometer. To the loop at the bottom
of it, you must sew a tape, and at the other
end of the tape, a small hook. * * * Cut a little
hole in the bottom of your left watch pocket,
pass the hook and tape through it, and down
between the breeches and drawers, and fix the
hook on the edge of your knee band, an inch
from the knee buckle; then hook the instrument
itself by its swivel hook, on the upper edge of
the watch pocket. Your tape being well adjusted
in length. Your double steps will be exactly
counted by the instrument.—
To James Madison. Washington ed. ii, 379.
