mais personne ne veut financer sa construction.

Plus tard, un Néo-Brunswickois s'empare des plans de Foulis, construit la corne de brume et l'installe sur Partridge Island afin de prévenir le trafic maritime des dangers présents à l'entrée du port de Saint John. À l'époque, Saint John est l'un des principaux ports de la côte Est, plaque tournante d'un commerce international florissant; l'industrie du transport maritime reconnaît donc la nouvelle invention à sa juste valeur. Plus tard, un autre individu aux États-Unis obtient le brevet. Foulis ne connaîtra ni la gloire ni la fortune que son invention méritait. C'est à Saint John, en 1866, qu'il meurt dans le dénuement le plus total.
Les historiens maritimes ont fini par reconnaître la corne de brume à vapeur de Foulis comme l'une des inventions majeures ayant permis l'amélioration de la sécurité des bateaux entre la fin du XIXe et le début du XXe siècle.
