    Thank you for republishing these articles–especially this one on Mansfield’s home silk industry! It appeared since I last looked at your website in mid-March.

    I am a curator at The Henry Ford in Dearborn, Michigan, currently working on an updated presenter manual for the 1810 Hanks Silk Mill, which I am sure that you know was moved by Henry Ford to his historical village in the late 1920s.

    Are there other articles, not currently available on the MHS website that relate to the silk mill or the Hanks family? I am trying to update our understanding of the mill and its role in the fledgling American silk industry. Thanks so much for any assistance you can provide!
