THOMAS G. PRETTYMAN has lately Patented, and is now Manufacturing, a Spring Saddle, much superior to any that have hitherto been ofiert d to the public. This improvement consists in the suspension of the whole seat by two C springs, similar to a gig spring, which being screwed on the back part, of the cuntle oftlie saddle, receives an iron bar, forming the sweep of thecantle; thus preserving it from receiving any injury by a horse rolling in the saddle; aqd making the saddle tree more firm than it would otherwise be, which cannot tail to give ease to both horse and rider. A frame also enters the back of the cantle of the saddle, calculated to raise the valice or portmanteau, and keep it entirely clear oftlie horse’s back. This can be put on or removed in a moment." In order to prove to the public the superiority of these Saddles, he will give a few extracts of letters from those who have them in use—among whom is the late President of the United States: T. G. Prettyman; Sir—1 find, on trial of your Patent Spring Saddle, that it corresponds with the view'you have taken of it JAMES MONROE. Oak I Lit, July 7 th, 1826. T. G.

It is so easy, that w ere I to ride a few hours on it, ! think it probable I should fall asleep. 1 admfre not only the invention, but the materials, and particularly the workmanship WILLIAM TII0HNT0N. Washington Ci)y, June Wth, 1826. T. G. Prettyman: Sir—1 have used your Patent Spring Saddle for some time past, and can say it is the easiest I have ever used— and can, agreeably to my - judgment and experience, in confidence recommend it. DANIEL KENNEDY. Charles County, Mtl July 8th, 1826. We, the subscribers, citizens of Alexandria, have usedT. G. Pretty man’s Patent Spring Saddle, and find it easier than any we have tried JOHN TJOOFF, A. C. CAZENOVE, July 28,1826. J. II. RUN NELLS. It being now more than twenty years since I was first acquainted w.tli the saddling business, and from near six years’ trial of my Spring Saddle four years be fore it was patented, in order to prove them, and near two years since on public trial, 1 can now with confi dence say, that a saddle made on this principle, is bet ter in every respect than a saddle made in any other way, either with or without springs; and I will give fif ty dollars to any man that can prove otherwise, or make any reasonable objection why it cannot be done; and 1 will give one hundred dollars for an improvement on them These saddles arc made complete at from twelve to forty-five dollars. The springs are equally as well a dap'ted to Lapiks’ saddles us any other; and any one I sending the* price of such a saddle as they may want, it will be finished to order as well as if personal appli cation were made, and when they receive the saddle, if it is not according to their expectation, they are at liberty to return it, and l will refund their money and pay all expence of conveyance to and from I). Jack son of Richmond, and Frederick F. Knea.ss of Peters burg, Va. who have rights to manufacture these sad dles; and any other person having a desire to manu facture the same can obtain a right by paying twenty dollars in hand and one dollar on each saddle manufac tured, or caused t be manufactured forthe remainder of fourteen years from the date of the Patent, which is Thirtieth of September, 1825; and any one sending the twenty dollars will be furnished with a complete nuxlclsothey cannot fail to make the ssddle; this mo del can be sent to any part of the United States. If any one wishes t» purchase a right for astute, or coun ty, or city, or town, he can have it on accohnnodating terms. These saddles are no more work to make them than the common plain saddle, and the spring* can be' made by any common blacksmith, and a boy that can do any work can pul them to tlie saddle tree.
