1831. "The committee have also examined Messers. Summers and Ogle, Mr. Hancock and Mr. Stone whose steam carriages have been in daily use for some months past on common roads. . . . Mr. Ogle states:-

'That his experimental carriage went from London to Southampton in some places at a velocity of from thirty-two to thirty-five miles per hour. That they have ascended a hill rising one in six at sixteen and a half miles per hour, and four miles of the London Road at the rate of twenty-four miles and a half per hour, loaded with people. That his engine is capable of carrying three tons weight in addition to its own.'" [4]

1833 June 22nd. 'On Saturday last Mr Nathaniel Ogle, accompanied by several ladies, together with Mr Babbage, Mr C Bischoff, Mr Macgary, Mr G Burdett, and other gentlemen, proceeded by his steam-carriage from the Bazaar in King-street, Portman-square, to call on Mr Rothschild at his residence at Stamford-hill. The vehicle, although it has been rattled over the roads nearly six hundred miles, is in efficient condition. A small quantity of waste steam was perceptible at first, until the boilers and casing were hot. The distance, full seven miles, was cleared, notwithstanding the crowded state of the roads, in thirty-one minutes, and the sudden and narrow ascent to Mr Rothschild's made with perfect precision, which was hardly to be expected from so long and ponderous a vehicle. The party was most urbanely and kindly received by Mr and Mrs Rothschild, and, after having partaken of refreshments, returned to Baker-street.' [5]
