About this Item: Forgotten Books, United States, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Excerpt from A Brief Description of James A. Foster's Patent Union Artificial Limbs: Manufactured at Philadelphia, Pa., Cincinnati, Ohio, Detroit, Michigan, and Rochester, N. Y The war through which we have just passed called into activity the inventive gienious of our people in a remarkable degree, and many kinds of artificial limbs will date their origin from the great struggle of the past six years. The wooden peg leg which was used by the disabled hero, according to the cuts in our old books, is now displaced by the handsomely turned and graceful limb of late inventors. In the case of the loss of a limb, a simple peg or hook is found to be quite useful and easily applied, but is neither graceful nor beau l. The great object now to be attained is to combine those qualities in the limb that will make it practically available in the rough and tumble of every day life, as well as beautiful in form and finish. I believe my Patent Union Leg now stands pre-eminent among its rivals for lightness and durability, combined with beauty of form and finish, affording the wearer the satisfying consciousness, that what he uses to conceal his loss is not a disgusting appendage, but on the con trary, a limb entirely worthy to conceal his loss. After reading the following pages I leave the reader to judge whether I 'have had supe rior advantages in experimenting with the artificial leg. I consider the person, that has suffered an amputation, and, after wearing a limb made by another manufacturer procured one of mine, the best judge for he (not like myself) is only interested in getting the best that is made. I, therefore, earnestly request a perusal of the certificates herewith appended, and, if they have any doubts of their authenticity correspond with any of their authors. Their addresses are given iri full, it will be observed, for that purpose. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

About this Item: Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Appropriations, Economy, and Reform: Speech of Hon. Charles Foster, of Ohio, in the House of Representatives, Monday, August 14, 1876 The minority of the Committee on Appropriations, supported by the minority of the House, entered upon their duties with the full determination of aiding the majority in making every possible reduction and postponement in the expenditures. We fully realized and appreciated the demand of the country for economy, and were therefore prepared to join hands with any party in Congress to provide preper measures of economy that would not cripple the Government or cause friction in the workings of the Government machinery. While the people of the country have rightly demanded economy at the hands of their representatives, they do not ask nor will they long permit the real functions of government to be impaired or weakened either at home or abroad. Since the culmination of expenditures in 1866 a steady, prudent, and entirely safe reduction in the expenses of the Government year by year has been the policy of the republican party. He precedent thus set should have been maintained until the expenditures had reached their lowest possible limit.

About this Item: Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from A Brief Description of James A. Foster s Patent Union Artificial Limbs: Manufactured at Philadelphia, Pa., Cincinnati, Ohio, Detroit, Michigan, and Rochester, N. Y The war through which we have just passed called into activity the inventive gienious of our people in a remarkable degree, and many kinds of artificial limbs will date their origin from the great struggle of the past six years. The wooden peg leg which was used by the disabled hero, according to the cuts in our old books, is now displaced by the handsomely turned and graceful limb of late inventors. In the case of the loss of a limb, a simple peg or hook is found to be quite useful and easily applied, but is neither graceful nor beau l. The great object now to be attained is to combine those qualities in the limb that will make it practically available in the rough and tumble of every day life, as well as beautiful in form and finish. I believe my Patent Union Leg now stands pre-eminent among its rivals for lightness and durability, combined with beauty of form and finish, affording the wearer the satisfying consciousness, that what he uses to conceal his loss is not a disgusting appendage, but on the con trary, a limb entirely worthy to conceal his loss. After reading the following pages I leave the reader to judge whether I have had supe rior advantages in experimenting with the artificial leg. I consider the person, that has suffered an amputation, and, after wearing a limb made by another manufacturer procured one of mine, the best judge for he (not like myself) is only interested in getting the best that is made. I, therefore, earnestly request a perusal of the certificates herewith appended, and, if they have any doubts of their authenticity correspond with any of their authors. Their addresses are given iri full, it will be observed, for that purpose. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
