Summary Ames observes that a large iron press of suitable construction would be useful in punching locks and mounting and patterns might be cut with less trouble. Since it is very difficult to obtain good castings, Hodgdon is asked to procure one made after the pattern of Mr. MacCarmoth in Philadelphia. If it is constructed for strength and usefullness it can be sent it to New York or New Haven as soon as it is convenient.
