Bro Chatterly.
I have received from you several specimens of Wire Cloth designed to be used for bolting cloths , & as I like the looks of it well, & have two flour mills in operation, if you have enough of it on hand to make a bolting cloth I wish you would send it to me by the first opportunity, if you have not I wish you to write to by the first Mail the different numbers calculated for bolting flour, & the place where they can be purchased, as I am anxious to procure bolting cloth of that description as soon as possible.
You sent me 8 Small pieces, three of them are numbered as follows. No. 52. & 74. there appears to be two Samples of No. 52. one of No. 40, three of No. 74 & one sample one number finer & one sample one Number coarser than 74. An early answer will oblige.
