5019. MANUFACTURES, Homespun.—

Homespun is become the spirit of the times.
I think it an useful one, and, therefore, that
it is a duty to encourage it by example. The
best fine cloth made in the United States is,
I am told, at the manufacture of Colonel
Humphreys in your neighborhood [New Haven].
Could I get the favor of you to procure
me there as much of his best as would
make me a coat? I should prefer a deep blue,
but, if not to be had, then a black.—
To Abraham Bishop. Ford ed., ix, 225.
(W. 1808)
