Printed for Sherwood, Gilbert, And Piper,

Take one hundred quarts of sour wine, bad vinegar, or small beer; put to either of these twenty-five pounds of old iron hoops rusted by the air or dew; twelve pounds of rye meal or coarse bran; put the whole into a copper and heat it rather more than blood warm. In the summer it would do exposed to the sun and air with a porous cloth over it, to let in the air, but keep out dirt, &c.; the older this solution is the better; but it should be at least two months old.

Cotton skeins are galled by being worked in a solution of galls; alumed and then dyed in weld liquor; this in the result is yellow; they are then passed through a decoction of logwood, and after that of sulphate of iron, a quarter of a pound to every pound of cotton; they are then dyed in madder, half a pound to every pound of cotton.

We cannot recommend this process, although we give it, as much better methods are now known.
