Description: Patent for a new and improved corn and cotton sweep. This design "is to provide an improved sweep for the cultivation of corn, cane, and cotton plants while they are young, which shall be capable of adjustment to plow-stocks of any class; to provide removable wings which can be applied or detached when it is desired to throw the dirt or soil to either the right or left; and to provide a removable point which can be replaced when it is worn out with another point of similar construction and thus render the sweep as good as new and save the farmer the cost of a new sweep" (lines 16-27).
