small cloth-dressing establishments, and he, in common with many others, was
obliged to abandon that business. Being, however, a very skilful dyer, he
devoted himself to that art, and had the principal charge of that department
in several "factories." He changed his residence frequently, as indicated by

Bible Classes," 1838, and a Centennial Address at Hardwick, in the same
