Book excerpt: Excerpt from Reports of the United States Commissioners to the Paris Universal Exposition, 1867, Vol. 6 The preparation of a report upon wool and manufactures of wool having been committed to the undersigned, it was his original purpose to limit himself to giving the general impressions made at the Universal Exposi tion of 1867 upon a business man greatly interested in, rather than techni cally informed as to, the woollen manufacture and the raw material supplying it. But in conformity with the views of the Department of State, that a report relating to so important a branch of national industry might take a wider scope with advantage to the public interests, the undersigned has consented to modify his original purpose, by adding to his personal observations more general views as to the present condition of the woollen industry at home and abroad, and such statistical state ments, obtained from the most recent and authoritative sources, as would throw light upon its economic and social relations. In the preparation of this work he has been assisted by Mr. John L. Hayes, secretary of the National Association of Wool Manufacturers, to whom the literary execution Of the report has been intrusted.
