To all whont it may concern:
Be it known that I, \VHITCOMB It.

The tower is of circular or cylindrical form in cross-section, and consists, essentially, of vertical ribs A, resting upon and extending from a suitable base B to and supporting a doubleticred gallery t, l),colonnade in style. An interior spiral or winding roadway E, extending from the base to the top, unites with the ribs A at suitable distances apart as a single structure, and appears in elevation through them.
