Most of the patents prior to 1836 were lost in the Dec. 1836 fire. Only about 2,000 of the almost 10,000 documents were recovered. Little is known about this patent. There are no patent drawings available. This patent is in the database for reference only.

"For a machine called " the Queen Washer," for Washing of Cloths and clothing, and scouring the same; Pinkham Mosher, Milton, Saratoga county, New York, October 10.

This royal washing machine bears a strong resemblance to some of its cotemporaries, as other royal personages are found strongly to resemble the less elevated of their species. By quoting a part of our notice of the last washing machine mentioned by us, we should furnish a tolerable description of the present. There is a circular segment furnished with rollers; upon these rollers the clothes are to be placed, when they are to be acted upon by rollers placed upon a swing frame, suited to the lower segment. (See the account of Cherry's washing machine, p. 402, of the last number.) We may also quote the concluding remark of that notice, as it applies to the specification of the present patent. There is no claim either general or particular."

Description from the Journal of the Franklin Institute, V5 1830 pg. 23.
