The subscriber having purchased the Right of the
above Machine for the Counties of Cumberland and
Harnett, is now ready to furnish such as may be
desirous of obtaining a Right. The machine is simple,
both in its structure and operations, and should any
portion of it fail, can be easily and speedily repaired
by any person having the use of tools. I do not claim
for this machine more than what it is able to perform
with that description of labor which almost evert J
teinilf Is 4ble to supply, without at all intevferi.r
with the ordinary duties. In the first place a child
12 or 15 years of age can perform all the labor. aftcY
baring, seen it operate a lew times, and if the direc
tions are adhered to, will do as much work in one day,
s three or four women in the ordinary way, and the
work will be much better done. Helow will be found
a certificate from those who have purchased and now
Lave in use one of these machines

it to the favor of the Public' It washes very rapidly,
and the work is much better done than is nvnniiv Hnn
in the old way, and with less wear to the Clothing.
It far exceeds our expectations, and has ouly to be
seen in operation to satisfy the most skeptical of its
utility and economy. We have no doubt of its being
generally used wherever introduced..
