PETITION AND DECLARATION MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY SPECIFICATION.—The petition and declaration must be accompanied by either a provisional specification or a complete specification, at the option of the inventor.

The inventor will then have an interval of six months for maturing his invention, and may introduce into his complete specification any improvements or development not inconsistent with the title, or with the principle enounced in the provisional specification.
