To the Author of the General Advertiser. SIR, Have obferv'd of late, with much Pleafure, in our pub-lick Papers, a Number of Paragraphs and Advertife-ments, which induce me to hope, that a Stop may be foon put to the illegal Wear of Callico Chintz. As a great National Advantage would, no doubt, arife from a ftnctObfer-vance of the Laws our Legiflature has provided againft their Ufe, it gives me the jitmoft Satisfaction to find, that a large Body of Men are, at a publick Expence, endeavouring to enforce a due Obedience to them. The Nation owes in my Opinion, its Thanks to thofe who are engaged, with 16 much Warmth, in this Purfuit; and efpecially, as I am" perfwaded, that the obtaining any Ends of their own is by no Means likely to be the Reward of their Trouble and Ex-pence in it. Very good Ends wflT ^certainly be hereby obtain'd, amongit which I reckon, - Firft, The farther Prqfperity and Improvement of the Antient Fuftlan Manufacture;of this K^jgjdjpm, which is without Difpute, at prefent, greatly injur'rf by'the tJfe of this Indian Commodity. v : ^.

I have been, I muft confefs, not a little furpriz'd, that a Point which feem'd fo much nearer to concern the Fuftian Manufacturer of Lancafoire, fhould have been neglected by him, or that it ihould be now profecuted by the Silk Weavers of London; but I have lately received from a Friend,' capable of mforming me, very fatisfactory Reafons for both. Conducts. It feems, that very great Quantities of Callico having been of late Years manufacturer to an uncommon Degree of Beauty by our Printers for Exportation, a Num� ber of Ladies, who by Chance got Sight of them, either in the Printers or Exporters Warehoufes, exprefs'd a ftrong D�-flre to be cloath'd in fuch Chintz, on a Manufacture allow'd to be worn. , They apply'd for this Purpofe to their different Linnen-Drapers, who endeavour'd to fupply them, by getting printed the like Patterns on fine Lawns, and on the fineft Cottons they could at that Time procure : It was foon found that neither of thefe entirely anfwered the Purpofe; the Cottons were then both too coarie, and too unfkillfu'lly made, and theLinnen in its Nature too cold and too raggy a Wear, nor had they the Brilliancy of Colouring of the Callico: Since this Time, the Cotton Manufacture has been gradually improving in Finenefs and Fitnefs to receive the Colours: But as Improvements go on fomething flow, the Imptience of thefe Ladies breaking thro' all Reltraints, determin'd them, at the Hazard of Five Pounds, to cloath. themfelves in one Callico Chintz Night-Gown, before proper fine Cottons^ were to be had to lupply them with ; and the Cotton Manufacturer has for fome time thought it his Intereft to wink at this, as he could not yet make fuffi-cient Quantities of fuperfine proper Cottons, to anfwer the Demand; and finding befides, that by the People of Fafhion being-fo drefs'd, the Demand for the lefs fine Cottons was considerably increas'd. At prefent, feveral of the Mancbefier Weavers are arriv'd at the Art of making Cottons, which in all Reipects equal Callico, and which Perfons of the belt Fafhion would equally approve of, even tho' they had not this ftrong additional Reafori|to prefer them, that they are the Manufacture of their own Country. The Linner-draper, now feeing a Stop put to his felling Indian Chintz, or Englifh Chintz on Callico, with any Safety, is providing himielf from Lan~ cajhire with proper Quantities of fuperfine Cottons; and there is no Doubt, but by the next Summer, the Ladies may b&fupplied with thefe, to any Degree of Finenefs. at a Price inconfiderably, if at all higher, than that of Callico of equal Goodnei's. This being the Cafe,' I again repeat it, that I entertain very ianguine Hopes of Englijh Chintz becoming a more favourite, and univerfal Wear than ever; and I truft that hereafter no Lady will, at the Hazard of paying Five Pounds, be cloathed in a Callico Chintz, to the Detriment of the Cotton Manufacture, and much lefs, at the Hazard of paying Two Hundred Pounds, be ever cloath'd in an Indian Chintz, to the Detriment both of that, and Iikewife of the Printing Manufacture. The Silk Weaver and Mercer, in the mean time, who my Friend informs me are flattering themfelves with Hopes that only Luteftringsare to newdrefs thofe Ladies they have been ftripping of their Callico Chintz, will in a few Months be ferifible of the Vanity of them, for which I fhall lefs grieve, as I am perfuaded that the Ufe of this Manufacture of Lancajbire, after it has undergone the long Procefs of Printing and Painting, will be of ftill more Advantage to the Nation, by employing a greater Number of its People.
