Fast Color.

Scientific American 22, 19.2.1848

A lady a short time since sent an elegant dress to a dyer's with instructions that he should dye it in handsome colors, warranted not to run: and she was somewhat surprised when the garment was sent home ornamented all over with beautiful little American flags, accompanied by the following explanatory note: -
"My Dear Lady: - The colors I have selected and used for your dress, have been tried by the English the French, and more recently by the Mexicans, and as they are convinced, no doubt, that these colors always stand, I have no hesitation myself in warranting them not to run."
