Pearl Necklace, Earrings, and Bracelets; long White Gloves; Silk Stockings; and White Satin Shoes, ornamented with silver. The Hair in braids in the front; full curls behind, fastened with a comb, worked with pearls.

Among the discoveries of the present age, that of the Imperial Twine Cloth stands Prominent; it is found to excel the Linen of Flanders, of Ireland, &c. and the Long-cloth of the Indies; the latter by its superior durability, &c &c--the former by its peculiar comfort, its singular conduciveness to health, and its general economy. His Majesty's Royal Letters Patent were granted by the Prince Regent, in June, 1813, to Mr. MILLARD, Proprietor of the that excellent Repository for Foreign and Home Manufactures, The East India Warehouses in Cheapside; where alone it is to be obtained, stamped with the Patentee's own name, &c in entire cases of sixty and thirty pieces each, by families and by merchants, in one or more pieces.
