"So great is the degree of perfection that marks the various processes of iron production that it seems almost useless to essay to further study a subject which has received the best thoughts and lifetime labors of the greatest metallurgists of all ages. Yet as we believe that there are still isolated cases whose various conditions have not received that consideration necessary to the most economical production of the pug; and believing that a most perfect knowledge of these conditions is essential to the final perfection of the metallurgy; and knowing further that a wide extended interchange of experience and discoveries alone can perfect any science we have undertaken the study of an individual case"--page 2.
