My Dear Sir


I have sent all
the copy back to Mr
Dorrell , & pushed him
to go on with the
printing at once. I have
postponed all material
alterations , & made my
few alterations , so that
the printing may be





proceeded with at once.
You may safely order
a large impression , but
I leave that to you.
The most important notices
of the book have yet
to appear. But it
would be an advantage
if the type could be kept
standing until about January ,
to see what the demand





may be.


I go down to Manchester this
evening to see some original
Crompton documents , & look at
some Cotton factories. Any letter
addressed to the above will reach
me on my return on Saturday
evening.


[Yours] faithfully


S Smiles


J. Murray Esq
