We have received a letter from a correspondent, in which he states "we were misinformed as to the person who first made the above kind of pipes in America, and the time when, as stated in our recent notice of this manufacture. He informs us that the person who first manufactured these tubes was " John Peace who came to this country from England in 1849, and contracted with Morris, Taskor &Morris, of Philadelphia, to establish them in the business; and that in March, 1850, under his superintendence, the first of those tubes were manufactured." "In 1851, their manufacture was also successfully carried on at the establishment of Seyfert, McManus &Co., Reading, Pa., under the management of Sampson Dain, who also came to this country from England.
