For and in consideration of the sum of two hundred dollars received of the J. &. E Stevens Co. of Cromwell Conn. I hereby agree to sell & assign all my right-title & interest in two inventions shown & left with said Stevens Co. May 7th 1886. The first article consists of a Toy Money Bank which hits on the Labor question and is called the Bread Winners Bank it consists of a platform or base near the center is a block & anvil on one side of the anvil is a figure representing labor the other side a character representing a capitalist holding on to a club which represents monopoly said club resting on the anvil and pivoted there to on the further end of the base behind the capitalist is a representation of a bag which is supposed to hold the wealth of dishonest persons. When the figure representing labor strikes the club with his sledge the other character suddenly changes ends or in other words his feet are where his head ought to be and the coin which is placed on the end of the club is deposited in the loaf of bread as represented.
     The other article is a novel arrangement of a call bell tooth pick holder & consists of a frame with knocker loosely hung on a cross bar at one end simply by hooking the knock on then fastening in the bell & receptacle prevents the knocker from getting out of place and the bell is complete
     I also agree not to get up any thing that will infringe on these articles and to sign & execute all papers at any time the said Stevens Co wish to apply for a patent on the articles named
