"40th exhibition of the American Institute, of the city of New York. Report of judges upon J. Hyde Fisher's refrigerators. 1st best. Circulation of air most perfect is not only dried but washed and purified by being brought in contact with the water on the surface of the ice, thus freeing it from the various impurities and flavors expelled from different articles being preserved. The airbeing pure, admits of preserving food at a higher temperature, thus requiring a smaller quantity of ice than otherwise. [Signatures of Rec secretary, Cor. secretary and President]." -- Verso.
"Patented August 1st, 1865. Re-issued january 31st, 1871. New patent November 19th, 1872. They work on natural principles, scientifically applied.

Hyde Fisher, p.o. box 170, Chicago, Illinois."
