The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 76



Office of the Ludlow Manufacturing Co.,

Dear Sir

133, Essex Street, Boston,

In reference to your inquiries as regards proper mode of marketing New Zealand hemp, I would recommend bales of about 300 lb. weight, and, if possible, put up in about the size of jute-bales—to wit, 4 ft. long by 20 in. by 18 in. All bales to be of uniform standard weight and size, approximating the above weights and measurements.

As regards colour, it would be best to keep as far as possible the colour of the best manila hemp.

We should be happy to give you any further advice if you can put any further questions to us.

We also recommend that you see the managers of the Plymouth Cordage Company, 5, Chatham Row, Boston, as they are the largest spinners of cordage hemps in America.

Yours, &c.,

Charles W. Hubbard

, Treasurer. Mr.

John Holmes.
