The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 76



I visited the Belfast Rope-works, but I regret to say that I had not an opportunity of meeting the manager, Mr. Smiles, to whom, however, I page 11 subsequently wrote asking for information. His reply is attached hereto. To the Lord Mayor of this enterprising city, as well as to Mr. S. McCausland, seed-merchant, and many other gentlemen, I owe my acknowledgements for valuable assistance and many acts of kindness.

Neither Dublin nor Cork had any rope-and cordage-factories of any magnitude. To the Lord Mayor of Dublin—Sir Reginald Guinness, Bart.—Sir John Power and Son, and to Mr. Alfred Barnard, of Glenalmond, South Norwood, who was visiting Ireland at the time, I am indebted for valuable information and great kindness.
