Linton's improvements "consist in the form of the bottom of the fire arches, ad in the mode of introducing the air into the furnace for igniting and burning the fuel and causing a free, steady, and unimpeded heat, equalized throughout the body of the kiln, by which I am enabled to greatly economize the fuel, and burn a kiln of bricks, or other articles manufactured of clay, more evenly and expeditiously than by any other mode with which I am acquainted."
