Letter, 29 April 1848, of George Kelly, a superintendent at Graniteville Manufacturing Company, to William Mason and Company (Taunton, Massachusetts).

Kelly’s letter concerns the purchase and shipment of various pieces of textile mill machinery required for the Graniteville Manufacturing Company. Kelly is chiefly concerned about the feasibility of acquiring pickers, drawing frames, and spinning frames to complement the one hundred looms he has just received from the Massachusetts firm.

Kelly estimates that if he had these items on hand Graniteville could commence weaving by the first of July. There was apparently some delay in obtaining the necessary equipment as the mill did not become fully operational until July of the following year.
