The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 76

48-51, Minories, London, E.C., 16th March, 1898

48-51, Minories, London, E.C.,

Dear Sir,—

We have your letter of yesterday, as also the sample of hemp referred to therein. We have carefully examined it, and consider it very good page 8 quality indeed, being of nice length, good colour, and fair strength, while, above all, it is well cleaned.

We should recommend two grades as being sufficient, and that the bales be made up of a uniform weight of 2½cwt., or eight to the ton, as in the case of manila hemp, but the size of the hanks is immaterial.

Yours, &c.,

John Holmes

, Esq.
