Letter dated 23 July 1836 to the directors of the British Cotton Manufacture Company offering information about a method for producing wicks from cotton, which according to the inventor give better light than wicks of "foreign Turkey yarn," in return for financial compensation, at a level to be determined based on the comprehensiveness of the patent to be sought by the company. The bifolium of the letter was folded for mailing and has an address and sealing wax on what was the exterior.
