January 15, 1868

*********************************************************

US 73.696                                 E.  Cornely

My invention consists in certain modifications to the sewing machine known as the Willcox & Gibbs sewing machine, by the means of which (without changing the principle of said machine and without changing materially its original construction,) the twisted loop-stitch, as well as the Grover & Baker stitch, can be made at the pleasure of the operator. The principal element of the Willcox & Gibbs sewing machine is its revolving hook or looper for making the single thread stitch and upon said looper is founded the superiority of the machine, as by its means it not only is less liable to drop stitches, but a great speed also may be attained, as all the movements of the machine are effected by circular eccentries or crank-motions, in contradistinction to irregular eccentrics or cam-motions, which permit of no great speed. These advantages I have preserved in connection with my improvements for making the single as well as the double thread stitch
