I dont know what it says but I know the language is French maybe someone can translate.
The first recorded use of roller skates was in a London stage performance in 1743. The inventor is unknown. The first known inventor was Jean-Joseph Merlin, who demonstrated a primitive inline skate with metal wheels in Belgium in 1759. The first roller skate design patent was obtained in France by M. Petitbled, in 1819.
These early skates were similar to today’s inline skates, but they were not very maneuverable; it was very difficult to do anything but move in a straight line and perhaps make wide sweeping turns. During the rest of the 19th century, inventors continued to work on improving skate design.
