6318. PAINE (Thomas), Iron bridge.—[further continued] .

Mr. Paine, the author of
“Common Sense”, has invented an iron
bridge, which promises to be cheaper by a great
deal than stone, and to admit of a much greater
arch. He supposes it may be ventured for an
arch of five hundred feet. He has obtained a
patent for it in England, and is now executing
the first experiment with an arch of between
ninety and one hundred feet.—
To Dr. Willard. Washington ed. iii, 16.
(P. 1789)
