 +===== Comments =====
 +
 +XC patents are Canadian patents issued between 1824 and 1869. The patent image was found in the 1860 book, "​Patents of Canada, from 1824 to 1849", published by the Canada East's Bureau of Agriculture and Statistics.
 +Inventor Gillett was also granted a US patent, {3,382}, for a shingle machine. That patent gives his resident as Bloomfield, MI. We suspect that he was an American who moved to Canada West only long enough to apply for a patent: at the time, only Canadian residents were allowed to apply for patents.
