Excerpt from Cotton Spinning, Vol. 2

This, the second volume, reprinted from The Textile Mercury, brings the subject of cotton spinning down to the end of what is generally termed the preparing processes. It includes all the machinery and manipulations between the card and the self-actor or ring-frame. As the operations included in this section have a most important influence upon the future character of the yarn, it has been considered necessary to go a little more deeply into the subject than is usually thought necessary. Attention has not only been confined to the principles underlying the actual processes themselves, which is of itself a most interesting and important feature, but in conformity with the objects that prompted the writing of the first volume, an effort has been made to give to the mechanical details an interpretation which some of them have hitherto not possessed.

It was with this purpose in view that the writer remarked in the preface to the first volume that the book would not be one of 'mere description.'
