From W.D. Mead to JHN. Offers thanks for sending notices of the work of Mr [Henry Steinhauser] Gibbs [probably Autobiography of a Manchester Cotton Manufacturer; or Thirty Years Experience of Manchester (Manchester: John Heywood, 1887); for more on this book see JHN/1/45] which he promises to pass on to Gibbs. Mead confirms that sales of the book remain a long way from covering its costs.
