Excerpt from A Complete Dictionary of Dry Goods and History of Silk, Linen, Wool and Other Fibrous Substances: Including a Full Explanation of the Modern Processes of Spinning, Dyeing and Weaving, With an Appendix Containing a Treatise on Window Trimming, German Words and Phrases, Together With Various Useful Tables
In presenting to the Dry Goods trade its first Dictionary (of American origin) the compiler feels confident that the time and labor devoted to make the work accurate and complete will commend it to the favorable consideration of everyone connected with the business.
In the retail, wholesale, and manufacturing branches of the Dry Goods trade, within the boundaries of the United States, there are over one million people engaged; in point of money invested, number of hands employed, and annual volume of business done, it easily ranks first in importance among all the industries which have grown and prospered since the beginning of civilization in the Western world. Indeed, the Dry Goods trade of the United States has more money invested in it than any other two interests in the country - estimated at the enormous sum of $20,000,000,000, while the next in order, the railroad, has only between $10,000,000,000 and $12,000,000,000. The part which the manufacture and sale of Dry Goods, in the terms widest meaning, has had in the building up of our national prosperity occupies no secondary position. It without doubt forms the greatest feature of our Nations commercial life. The Dry Goods store is found in every village and hamlet, and is the center of trade and barter in all rural communities. In the larger towns and cities the Dry Goods interest predominates in the same manner as in the smaller, forming by far the most important department of business, and aiding to a certain extent in sustaining all other branches of trade.
