Printed for Sherwood, Gilbert, And Piper,

After dyeing muslin blue in the blue vat, weld must be boiled in the same manner as for fast yellow. The quantity of weld to be used, must be according to the fulness of the blue ground, and of what shade the green is to be; a proportion of alum must also be used. The goods, after being worked in the same manner by the selvage, must be washed olf, and stiffened, if for the glazer, but not if for dress, but be framed by the muslin dresser.
