"I propose to give directions for the construction of a canvas canoe, requiring no great expenditure of money, from a week to a fortnight of spare time, a very few tools, and a moderate amount of skill.  I have from time to time made canoes of various kinds, and have been led to adopt the pattern to be hereafter described as being most easily and cheaply constructed, and as possessing the important characters of speed, comfort, safety, and fair durability, and not being too heavy to carry on the shoulder for a quarter of a mile or so if necessary."
