Content: Printed on image: "Ten Eyck=sc.-N.Y." Printed on border: "Every farmer who has trudged after a plow under a hot sun has doubtless wished for just some such an invention as that illustrated in the annexed engraving. It is simply an attachment readily applied to any convenient portion of the plow, the object of which is to support an umbrella and to allow of the same being adjusted so as always to throw its shade upon the plowman … This invention was patented through the Scinetific American Patent Agency, October 27, 1874, to Jefferson G. Darby, of Fort Motte, S.C." Written on border: "Jan. 9, 1875."
