This tidbit of history comes to us through a reprint of an 18th century pamphlet by "The Colonial Printer and Bookbindery".The Art of English Shooting, dated 1777 mentions trying your new shotgun by measureing powder and shot using a pipe bowl !! One bowl powder, one and a half bowls shot ! A final charge can be worked up later. Who Knew.
Some interesting facts from the Reverend Burnaby's journal of 1759...American wool grows to an average length of 7 inches The wool of England grows 22 inches in length!!
White Pine trees are harvested in Mass. and average 40 yards in length [120 feet] and 40 inches in diameter. They are harvested in winter, to slide on the snow, and are dragged out of the forest by 70 to 80 teams of oxen!!
