The Fate of an inventor. Pm Whitney Xiv or in ipod Tho i Volltin or Otto Cotton Gin. The Story of Eli Whitney Tho inventor of the Cotton Iru carries with it a useful Loayon says the engineering Mara zone. Born at was Borough Worcester to county mass., december a 1765, do Joen ded from an ancestor who came to America in 1682 and of whom it is said that to the youngest son of a Well to do englishman came at his father s suggestion who was convinced that America was to be a great country. This lather is said to have called his sons together and promised to the one who would go to America in his place he being too old to emigrate a doubles portion of his property. His descendant.

For up to that time Tho whole amount of what he had acquired from his efforts after deducting his expense had not exceeded one half the sum which a single individual has gained by the use of Tho Maolne in one year. This was the invention that had trebled the value of the land Over a Large extend of territory As it was considered at Tho time and species of Cotton were introduced that were never known As an article of Commerce until this method of cleaning wot while this relates to Tho condition of the Art brought about pc t y Whitney s invention As it impressed those who lived in 1812, Tho vory men whose wealth had been acquired by the use of the machine and had grown Rich of beyond All former examples combined their exertions to provent Tho Patentee from deriving any greater emolument irom his invention.
