A GREAT SAVING / TO FARMERS AND GRAZIERS. / THE PATENT BOLTING/ MACHINE. / There is not perhaps in creation, any animal so useful to man, / as the Cow and Horse; therefore behoves him, to do all / that is in his power for their relief in cases of distress-- and as / many cows are lost by hoveing or swelling, when they eat / too much clover, strong grass or cornstalks, and also by getting / apples, potatoes, turnips or other obstructions in the throat or / gullet, for want of a proper instrument to relieve them. / The newly invented and truly useful Bolting Instrument, is / an instant cure in the above mentioned cases. It is of much / use also in case of cholic and giving medicine to Horses, and / its durability may be moderately calculated at fifty Years. / This valuable instrument is to be sold at No. 20, Marsh-Mar- / ket, Baltimore, by the Proprietor / THOMAS JOSEPHSON SIMPSON; [followed by another six lines describing the instrument and how to use it].
