Excerpt

felt greatly discouraged.

They went to work again.

They built another boat.

This was a success.

It was sixty-six feet long, and moved by wheels on the side.

Mr. Livingston and Mr. Fulton decided to try again in America upon the Hudson River.

Mr. Livingston was given again the same privileges by the State of New York.

But this time Mr. Fulton was his partner.

They were given two years in which to make their boat.

They were to make one which could go four miles an hour.

Mr. Fulton promised to ask only a certain sum of Mr. Livingston.

He talked long and earnestly to him.

Mr. Fulton wanted one thousand dollars.

His friend said he would see him again.
