From the July 1830 Journal of the Franklin Institute: "We are not acquainted with all the modes adopted for making pill boxes, but those described in the present patent are so simple and obvious in their character, that we should apprehend that they, or others equally good, must have been long known and practiced. Cylinders of wood are used for making round boxes, and their covers, and oval formers for those which are to have that shape; round these the chip is bent for the purpose of gluing it. These molds are to be made true by forcing them through round or oval holes in a steel plate prepared for that purpose. Blocks of wood, with wedge shaped channels are used to retain the bodies in their places whilst the glue is drying. A cutting gauge is employed to divide the glued pieces into proper widths.

"This is the whole amount of the patent, and as no claim is appended to the specification, all the modes described must be considered by the patentees as constituting it."
