of Ingredients, and Manufacture, it having been considered for many reasons not advisable to do so.Several Officers have visited this Establishment within the last year, and appeared to take an interest in the verbal descriptions given them by me, on witnessing the different stages of fabrication- should the perusal of this Pamphlet revive any interest they may have taken in the subject treated of, or give those who have not visited the Factory, some slight insight into the manufacture of this most important material of War, my object in writing these pages will have been more than gained.J.

Fraser Baddeley, Waltham Abbey, January, 1857
