Excerpt from The Story of the Cotton Gin

Whitney, protested against the praises of his friend, removed what hopeful expectations the most ardent may have had by calmly replying that he had never seen either cotton or cotton-seed.

Mrs. Greene's Object in her friendly introduction was to attract the attention of her influential visitors to the promis ing young man whom she was befriending. The conversa tion, however, had an unexpected result. The young law student threw aside his books and soon set off for Savannah. There he wandered about the wharves, in and around the storehouses, seeking a sample of cotton. After a long search he returned with a small parcel. A workroom in the basement Of the house was set apart for his use. He made the tools necessary for his task, drew his own wire, and proceeded to construct a gin engine is the full form) for separating cotton fibre from the seeds. His pur pose was divulged to no one save Mrs. Greene. The winter of 1792-93 was nearly over when his mysterious task was fully and satisfactorily completed. Early in the spring the cotton gin was set up in a shed, and prominent planters from all over the states were invited to see it work. It was successful from the start. The machine for which there had been such a clamoring for many years was at last pro vided by the ingenuity of a Yankee student.
