Jones's states his patent's objective as "to improve the steam-valve, for which Letters Patent of the United States were granted to me on the 9th day of September, 1873; and the nature of my invention consists in a novel contrivance for adjusting the valve at its seat as the degree of expansion of these parts requires; also in a steam-lever arrangement for holding the valve-steam tight on its seat, and taking up lost motion in the journal boxes of the valve trunions..."
