Notes:
Relates to, "A Binnacle Time Piece or Time Keeper". "My Invention is intended to supercede the use of sand glasses used on board ships". "to divide time in the same manner as seamen and mariners usually do at sea by means of a half-hour sand glass and bell, for the purpose of regulating their several watches on deack and in the amnner in which I have contrived the case, and fitted the said time keeper into it, to answer several purposes in regard to winding up and securing it from injury by wet, and for conveniently and securely attaching it or fixing it into a binnacle,". Reprint of 1856
