CERTIFICATE OF ROYAL APPOINTMENT.
By virtue of the Authority to me given,
I do hereby Nominate and Appoint Mr. JOHN THOMAS RAWORTH, of Leicester, to be Manufacturer of Sewing Thread to Her Majesty.
He is to have and enjoy all the Rights, Profits, Privileges, and Advantages to the said place belonging during my Will and Pleasure. And for the same this shall be a sufficient Warrant. Given under my Hand, this 14th day of August, 1837. in the first year of her Majesty's Reign

The attention of all purchasers and consumers of SEWING COTToNs, is called to our “Nine CORD,” “ GOLDEN Flax," and "Queen's Cotton" (super Six-Cord)—These svwings being manufactured from the finest long-stapled Sea Island Cottons only, are of a very superior quality, being without any artificial waxing or glazing whatever. In addition to their well-known excellence for HAND-SEWING, they are also especially adapted for use in every kind of Sewing Machine, working with great ease and freedom, and showing a full and handsome stitch.
Seeing the necessity, through the increasing use of the SEWING MACHINE, of bringing out an article in “Glace Thread” that would stand the Friction and Tension of the Sewing Machine without curling and snapping as ordinary Glace Cottons will, we have succeeded in bringing out a reel which we can recommend to our friends with all confidence, feeling sure that a trial will give them every satisfaction. It is spun from the finest staples only, and is of great strength and elasticity, with an improved finish, rendering it quite soft and silky, and showing no disposition to twist and curl.
