ANDREW J. BRALEY, OF BERLINQVERMONTV Letters Patent No. 89,016, dated April 20, 186 9.

IMPROVED SLED-BRAKE.

The Schedule referred to in these Letters Patent and making part of the same.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that 1, ANDREW J. BRALEY, of Berlin, county of Washington, and State of Vermont, have invented a new and improved Sled and Sleigh- Brake; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to 'the letters of reference marked thereon.

The nature of my invention consists in a movable roll, which is moved backward and forward in the slots B B, as may be seen by reference to the accompanyingdrawings, by the action of the horse, or any team, in holding back when descending a hill.

When theroll A is moved backward in the slots B B, it strikes the brake-irons, or levers O O, and forces the lower ends of them below the runners D D, to which the brake-irons or levers are attached, by means of the bolts E E, which either pass through the runners or the brake-bars K K, and can be shifted to'two or mor'e'holes in either the runners or bars,

0' latm.

\Vhat I claim as my invention, and'desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

The combination of the movable roll A, with'the slots B B, the brakes O G, the brake-bars K K, and the books I I, when constructed and operated substantially as herein described, and for the purposes specified.

ANDREW J. BRALEY. Witnesses:
