Notes: "The following pages are taken from a pamphlet published in Virginia, to prove the author's prior right of applying steam, to propel boats &c. .. as Mr. Fitch intends to answer the pamphlet, it is .. necessary to republish as much of it as respects Mr. Fitch, which is done with no other variation from the original, than to correct a few of the omissions and mistakes that were introduced into the first publication ... No. 19 is added ... it is part of a letter wrote by the editor to ... General Washington."--Advertisement, p. [2].
The original pamphlet was published under the title: A plan wherein the power of steam is fully shewn.
