On exhibition and for of sale at Iron Hall.
The Citizens of the District of Columbia and strangers are respectfully invited to call and witness the operation of Wheeler & Wilson's celebrated Stitching Machine, (patented June, 1852) by a young lady daily from 12 to 3 o'clock.
The time has come when the wear wearisome bondage of the needle to woman, the wear and tear of the nerves and the patience to our wives and daughters, the anxiety and toil of one of the most essential branches of home industry, will be so much lessened a mere past time. The astonishing facility and precision with which the work is done and so easy that the feeblest constitution, or a child of 7 years of age can operate it for hours without fatigue. It is therefore urged upon families and neighborhood to combine together and procure an instrument calculated so much to alleviate household toil.
Written orders left with the young lady, or Mr. Myers, at the place of exhibition, or addressed to the subscriber, who is sole Agent for the Inventors and Manufacturers in this section of the country, will be supplied with a machine in perfect order, with full directions for operating them successfully, at short notice, at the established factory price. $125 00.
Washington, D.C., January 1854 J. B. WOODRUFF
