The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 76

Boston, Mass., 14th October, 1898

Boston, Mass.,

Dear Sir,—

Your favour of the 10th instant at hand.

The imports of manila into America last year were about 457,000 bales. Of sisal there were imported, during 1898, 439,000 bales, and exported 11,000, leaving a balance in this country of 427,000 bales.

During last summer I think about 83/94,000 tons of binder-twine were made.

I trust the above is what you want. The answer to your letter has been delayed owing to my absence in New York.

I am, &c., Mr.

John Holmes


E. D. Ver Planck.

Government Commissioner of New Zealand, Montreal, Canada.
