The proper way to ascertain the allowance to be made for the pelts is by pulling (not shearing) the wool from the skins, for the purpose of estimating the correct weight of the same.
The following rules for estimating the weight of the following wools on skins, being deduced from several careful experiments made under the instructions of this Department will be adopted at the several ports, to wit:
