An agreement in writing between a manufacturing corporation and its agent for a certain district by which it agreed to sell him its goods at certain prices and he agreed to sell the goods and pay it those prices was signed by the agent. A guarantee of his future performance of his agreement was signed by another person on the same day and delivered by the guarantor to the agent. The agreement and guarantee were delivered by the agent to an attorney of the corporation, who two days afterwards wrote under the guarantee his certificate of the sufficiency of the guarantor, and forwarded the agreement and guarantee to the corporation, which thereupon signed the agreement, but gave no notice to the guarantor of its signature of the agreement or acceptance of the guarantee.
Held that the contract of guarantee was not complete, and the guarantor was not liable for the price of goods sold by the corporation to the agent and not paid for by him. This was an action, brought in the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia upon a guarantee of the performance by one John W. The guarantee was upon the same paper with the above contract, and was as follows:. Poler, and the payment by said John W.

My invention is an improvement in drophead sewing machines and relates particularly to an improved means for raising and lowering the sewing head. My invention has for its object the improvement of sewing machines of the type patented to myself and A. I find that in machines made with the wooden guide rods shown in the above mentioned patent, there is considerable tendency for such guide rods to shrink, warp and swell, according to the varying conditions of the weather, and thus interfere with the smooth operation of the device.
In my improved machine these guide rods are made of metal and the objections which have here tofore been presented are thereby obviated. In addition to this change I have made a number of other improvements in this type of machine as will hereinafter appear, and have greatly simplified and improved the same.
I would also like to get an idea of the manufacture date and find a If your machine is like this, it requires a Davis Long needle, and there is a.

1870’s Davis octagonal sewing machine
I love it Charlee! It is so “sweet” looking with the little flowers and the decals on the frame. Great find! You know, you’re going to have to rent that shop pretty soon if you adopt any more orphans! So many of her decals are gone, but I suppose if I was a well used year old “lady” ; some of my prettier features might be missing too!! You need to make a trip to Central Oregon!

Although Elias Howe had patented the lock stitch sewing machine in initially there was little interest in this new invention. Gradually though a small number of firms started to produce primative sewing machines and later the American courts decided many of the machines produced infringed Elias Howe’s Patent. Following various legal disputes the owners of the most important patents formed the Sewing Machine Combination in to jointly licence the use of their patents, from then on America developed a thriving sewing machine manufacturing industry.
Many companies remained small and only made sewing machines for relatively short periods before disappearing sometimes leaving only a name or machine to history. Our aim is to establish a comprehensive list of American Sewing Machine Manufacturers, the machines made and dates of production. This is not straight forward, some early sewing machines were named after the Patent used rather than the Company which produced the machine, names of defunct companies were reused years later, and there were an enormous number of machines labelled for retailers!
Concequently it is not our intention to list labelled machines. The list provided below is in its infancy and will be updated as and when new information becomes available to us.
The issue with being able to just ID a unit from that description is that there were many companies that made base components that sewing machine companies would then buy and use. We see the exact same parlor cabinets across many makers, I have seen the same handles on several different brands. We are a very visual group around here, a picture or two would help. Also, if you could take a moment and post a quick blurb in the Introductions thread so we can get to know you and your interests, it would be great!

Be it known that’I, Jon A. My improvements relate tothe means for actuating the helper-. In my Letters Patent of October 9, the helperba-r is operated by means of a swell or cam-like projection on one edge ot’ the needle-bar, at or near its top; an inclined slotin the helper, and a pin in the prcsscrbar, permittingthe downward and lateral motions of the helper’ against the force of a side spring.
The action of the helper is not, in such construction, necessarily positive in its action, but may fail to perform its duty. In my present improvement, 1 dispense wit-b thc swell, the inclined slot, the pin on the presser-bar, and the laterally-prcssing spring, and employ instead simply a side projection on the needle-bar, and a recess in the adjacent side of the helper-bar; a springr secured to both bars tending to keep this projection against the upper side of the recess.
F the spring, exerting a torce constantly tending to press the helper down andthe needle-bar upwards, relatively to each other. The helper is located between the needle-bar and the presser-bar, and hence is made narrower towards its lower end, to permit the proper lateral movements. It is operated entirely bythe needle-bar. When the needle-bar descends, the force of spring F, which is made of sufficient power for such purpose, operates to carry the helper down coincidently with the needle-bar, and thus preserve their original relative positions until the helper comes in contact with the table or the fabric thereon.
The further descent of the needle, and until it reaches its extreme lowest point, docs not actuate the helper, nor is it impeded by the helper, for the reason that the’slot inthe latter gives free play for this further descent, by permitting the projection D to descend in slot E, and the resilience of spring F being the only resistance offered to such descent.
The slot E is made of sufficient length to meet all the demands of the machine; and in iig. The helper, as is well known, is employed to aid the needlevfeed, by moving laterally with the needle, but in advance of it, in order tokeep the fabric sn’rooth, andprevent its bunchingiin front ot’ the nccdle, in thc line or direction of its teeding-morement. To work efficiently, therefore’, it is apparent that it should act upon the cloth in close proximity to the needle, or as near as practicable; and, further, that there should be no intervening device, such as a presser-foot, for cxample,fbetween it and the needle, and which could bear down upon the cloth, and so disturb or prevent.
