I went to a cloth market in the city today and scored 3 metres of wool,  brown houndstooth check with faint red stripe,  for no money. Quite pleased about that. I don't think the fellow knew what he was selling.

Each phenomenon which is taken up should be treated with as much thoroughness as possible at that standpoint... One thing at a time and that done well!

Henry - lucky you! I recently scored 2-3yd pieces of silk - one a beautiful jacquard - for $3 each -quite a find. But I've not been so lucky with wool. Congrats!
