All kinds of machine work,
Such as repairing Steam Engines, Cotton Gins, &c. Also forgings of all kinds. Work done promptly and on terms to suit.
I also keep on hand all kinds of Mill and Steamboat supplies, such as belting, pipe, valves, iron and steel, &c., which I will sell at bottom figures.
Machinery of all kinds.
Steam engines and boilers, saw and grist mills, cotton gins, shafting, pulleys and hangers, gearwheels, etc., furnished on application, at Manufacturers prices and on reasonable terms.
I keep nothing but first-class goods and sell none but the best machinery, and trust by strict attention to business, offering none but the best goods and doing all work in a thorough and workmanlike manner, together with reasonable prices, to merit a good share of public patronage. Orders by mail will receive prompt attention.

Public Domain is a copyright term that is often used when talking about copyright for creative works. Under U.S. copyright law, individual items that are in the public domain are items that are no longer protected by copyright law. This means that you do not need to request permission to re-use, re-publish or even change a copy of the item. Items enter the public domain under U.S. copyright law for a number of reasons: the original copyright may have expired; the item was created by the U.S. Federal Government or other governmental entity that views the things it creates as in the public domain; the work was never protected by copyright for some other reason related to how it was produced (for example, it was a speech that wasn't written down or recorded); or the work doesn't have enough originality to make it eligible for copyright protection.
