Excerpt from Treatise on Mills and Millwork, Vol. 1 In the first part of this work I endeavoured to give a succinct account of nearly fifty years experienced in the profession of a mill architect, millwright, and mechanical engineer. My professional career commenced just at a time when the manufacturing industry of the country was recovering from the effects of a long and disastrous war, and I was enabled, from this circumstance, to grow up with and follow out consecutively nearly the whole of the discoveries, improvements, and changes that have since taken place in mechanical science. These discoveries have been numerous and invaluable in contributing to the development of our industrial resources, the diffusion of knowledge, and the extension of trade and commerce throughout the globe. It will not be necessary to repeat what steam, gas, and electric telegraphs have effected both on sea and land in the same time, and how much we are indebted to these agencies for the abundant comforts, luxuries, and enjoyments which we now possess, as compared with the age in which our fathers lived. It will be found on enquiry that in mills, where these agencies are employed, and where the manufacture of cotton, silk, flax, and wool are carried on, are some of the elements to which we are indebted for the numerous advantages which enter into the improved state of our social existence. To mills, therefore, I have directed my attention, and in this volume I have endeavoured to follow up more in detail the principles of construction and other serviceable data to which, I trust, the intelligent student may refer with some prospect of advantage.
