Notice To Captains of Vessels and Vessel Owners and Insurance Companies

The Undersigned begs leave to inform the public that he has on hand a New Invented Purchase, called the Friction Wedge Power. It is the most powerful of any purchase known, and it is applicable to push, pull or lift any weight required. It is portable and well adapted for lifting Sunken Wrecks, and One Man can work it to 100 tons strain. It is simple, and no complication. The Undersigned has also a quantity of Lifting Buoys and various other tools for lifting Sunken Wrecks; and also a Small Vessel Fitted Out for that purpose, and holds himself open to charter.
