Excerpt from Nathan Read: His Invention of the Multi-Tubular Boiler and Portable High-Pressure Engine, and Discovery of the True Mode of Applying Steam-Power to Navigation and Railways, a Contribution to the Early History of the Steamboat and Locomotive Engine

In prosecuting our inquiries we have found it meces sary to compare the respective claims of inventors; but this occupies no distinct portion of the narrative, and is drawn from the facts here presented, and from the published accounts of various authors; and such extracts as have been deemed proper to elucidate the subject, or to give interest to the reader, have been duly credited, by reference to the authorities.

It will be seen that different projectors, supported by different countries, come in as contestants for the honor of these inventions: England, Scotland, France.
