The weavers case. Plainly shewing, that the wearing of Indian Calicoes, &c. has been, and still is, the occasion of the great decay of trade in general, and almost the total ruin of the silk and woollen manufactury in particular; even to the starving and impoverishing of many thousands of families in most parts of England for want of employment. To which is added, some necessary directions to prevent these growing evils for the future, in order to restore trade to its primitive establishment, and consequently, make it once again flourish, and the nation happy. By Edward Johnson, weaver.
