CORYDON \VHEAT, OF GENEVA, NE\V YORK.
Speccaton of Letters Patent No. 21,790, dated October l2, 1858.
To all whom t may concern:
Be it known that I, CORYDON IVHEAT, of Geneva, in the county of Ontario and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful improven'ients in the pad or cushion for the cure of corns and for other appliances where there are sores or tender spots on the limbs and in the application of the same; and I do hereby declare the following to describe and ascertain my invention, referring to the accompanyingfigure in explanation thereof.
It is a Well known device to put a piece of leather over a corn With a hole in it so as to relieve the seed of the corn from pressure by which a cure is readily effected; so cushions are often employed at points upon the feet and limbs to relieve them from pressure Where such pressure would relieve the part beneficially, but the trouble experienced in afIiXing them has often prevented their use for this purpose. Adhesive material of some sort has been used or the leather has been sewed on or bandaged with cloth all of which methods are objectionable for many reasons that Will readily recur to the mind Without enumeration.
M i device is simply the combination of an elastic band with the pad or cushion so as to enable the wearer to readily slip it on to the spot required Where it Will be steadily and firmly held, can be easily and speedily removed and replaced and is always ready for use Without further adjustment.
Having thus fully described my improvenient in corn-eradicators and cushion or pledget and its application what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is The corn eradicator constructed as herein described as an article of manufacture substantially in the manner and for the purposes set forth.
In witness whereof I have hereto subscribed my name.
In presence of- GEO. YV. HoR'roN,
L. W. LACY.
