This little Carriage, now so much in use, has for its main features remarkable lightness with great strength, being under 60lbs weight. Perfect proficience in its use can be attained by the most inexperienced persons with the greatest ease, while the greatest rate of speed can be obtained with far less exertion than with another velocipede yet offered to the public. It is manufactured of the best iron and steel and the wheels are made of the best American Hickory, with bent rims. Specimens may be seen on the premises, an inspection of which is respectfully solicited at
