      Here, in 1814, he erected a carding-machine. A description 
      of the effort required to accomplish this, was recently given by 
      J. Backus in the 'Montrose Republican.' 

      ''Bela Jones, Esq., and myself proposed to set up a carding-machine at 
      the outlet of Jones' Lake. Taking my knapsack of provisions, I started on 
      foot for Otsego County, New York, distant about one hundred miles, where 
      machines were being manufactured; purchased a single machine, and set 
      about finding means of transportation. 

      " An acquaintance told me he had a skiff in the river somewhere below, 
      and if I could find it I might take it for that purpose. I hired a teamster to 
      carry my machine to a place designated, in the neighborhood of what was 
      then known as Collier's tavern, some miles above Wattles' ferry, where I 
      found the skiff, bottom upwards, with its seams so opened by the sun as to 
      cause it to be very leaky. However, I procured some tow and tar, and pro- 
      ceeded to calk and fit my craft for the voyage. I succeeded, and, loading, I 
      set sail. Landing at night, and putting up with a settler along the bank, I 
      reached Great Bend in safety, deposited my freight in DuBois's shed, and 
      came home. At that time it was much more difficult to get teaming done 
      than now; but Capt. Abinoam Hinds, a very kind, obliging man, went with 
      me on Saturday, to bring the machine, and such was the condition of the 
      roads that we failed to reach our destination till long after dark ; so we de- 
      tached the horses, came into town, put them in Austin Howell's shed, and 
      the captain led the way into the chamber of the house, and we retired for 
      the night. Starting early, before any one was stirring, we unloaded, and 
      returned home without disturbing the community.
