The silk should be ungummed by boiling it four hours with a quarter of its weight of white soap, and after-wards to be well cleared from the soap.

Take, for every hundred pounds of silk, twenty pounds of galls in powder, and boiled one hour; two pounds of sulphate of iron; twelve pounds of iron filings; and twenty pounds of gum arabic or Senegal.

This process is very simple: here are the gallic acid and tannin of the galls, and the iron of the sulphate and the filings. But we must proceed to a more modern process.
