We, the undersigned, having seen J. T. King's Patent Washing Apparatus
in operation at the Fair of the Maryland Institute, have no hesitation in say-
ing that it will accomplish all he claims for it. The most soiled Clothing
were put into the apparatus, and in 5 minutes came out perfectly clean and
looked much whiter than when washed by the old process. JOHN S. SELBY,
Agent of the Maryland Institute; Zenus Barnum, Barnum's Hotel; Wm.
Guy, U. S. Hotel; John F. Meredith, B. C. S. Bennett, Jas. Henderson, S. T.
Taylor, Haywood, Bartlett & Co., Joseph Simms, S. B. Sexton.

To this Apparatus was awarded the 1st Premium, a Gold Medal, at the late
Fair of the Maryland Institute.

THE JUDGES WERE—John H. B. Latrobe, Thomas Winans, John G,
Milholland, Wm. Bodman, Talbot Denmead, Robert Poole.

SPECIAL COMMITTEE—Johns Hopkins, Wm. H. Harrison, David Hays,
J. C. Wilson.

COMMITTEE ON AWARDS—J. Vansant, James Murray, Wm. Bayley,
G. R. Dodge, Thomas Trimble, Hugh Bolton, Enoch Pratt, A. Flannagan,

We still continue to Manufacture King's Magnetic Washing
Liquid, by the use of which in a common boiler (J pint of liquid
