Description of the subject depicted in the print (from the original source): The most extensive and completely equipped, and the most successful of the bleaching establishments of our country, is the Moshassuck Bleachery, owned by Messrs. W. F. and F. C. Sayles. It is situated upon the Moshassuck river, about two miles from Pawtucket, Rhode Island, in the midst of picturesque scenery, and in railroad communication with the whole country. The waters of the stream are pure, and well-adapted for the purposes of the bleachery. There, in the year, 1848, William F. Sayles began the business without any previous knowledge of the art, and with a very moderate capital, but with a determination to make the establishment, whatever it might grow into, a model one of its kind. Mr. Sayles was contented, at first, to turn out two tons and a half of bleached goods each day. The business gradually increased, and in 1854, when it had reached about four tons a day, it was regarded, especially in the perfection-of its work, as the leading bleaching establishment in New England. It was attracting the finest goods from the looms of that region, when fire totally destroyed it. It was re-built the same year (1854), with a capacity of six tons a day. Before the close of the next year, further enlargements were made, and from that time to the present, the extensions have been going on almost continuously, its present capacity being forty tons a day, or 300,000 yards of bleached goods.
