Clark's patent "consists in so constructing a boot-tree, as to enable the workmen in boots to use the tree in such a manner in the stretching and shaping of the boot as to admit of applying the required pressure at any one point independent of another - that is to say, for example, instead of stretching or distending the whole of the boot simultaneously, by my improvements the leg, heel, sides, instep, or toe, each can be distended or stretched separately without at all interfering with the other several parts..."
