5030. MANUFACTURES, Household.—[further continued]..

The specimens of Mrs.
Mason's skill in manufactures excite the admiration
of all. They prove she is really a
more dangerous adversary to our British foes
than all our generals. These attack the hostile
armies only; she the source of their subsistence.
What these do counts nothing, because
they take one day and lose another:
what she does counts double, because what

she takes from the enemy is added to us. I
hope, too, she will have more followers than
our generals, but few rivals, I fear. These
specimens exceed anything I saw during the
Revolutionary war; although our ladies of
that day turned their whole efforts to these
objects, and with great praise and success.—
To John T. Mason. Ford ed., ix, 473.
(M. 1814)
