Cotton Manufactory


The subscribers respectfully inform the public in general, and the friends of the Domestic Manufactures, in particular, that after an additional expense, they have improved their Cotton Spining Machines materially, and which are in full operation.- They have a quantity of cotton yarn, of different qualities, on hand, which they will sell at reduced prices. They also now carry on the Blue Dyeing Business - - and shortly expect to dye other colours - - so that persons may supply themselves with coloured, as well as with white, yarn; and likewise cotton goods by the piece.
