A Letter from Gloucester (September 12, 1791)

A gentleman from York passed through this city a few days ago, who gave us a new confirmation of the flourishing state of the woolen trade in that county. He says that although so many machines have been erected, yet the trade has thereby been increased to that degree that at this time no less than seventy additional machines are now setting up in the neighborhood of Leeds, Bradford, and Huddersfield. One manufacturer assured this gentleman that he was in such want of hands as to be driven to the expedient of procuring from the workhouses of London 500 poor children to be employed in his workshops.
