Sam Clements found an earlier "sweat shop" than I'd posted, from February
1891. I'm doing a New York web page and I'm trying not to give him too much

IN DARKEST NEW YORK.; Dreadful Places and Dreadful Things in the American
Chicago Daily Tribune (1872-1963). Chicago, Ill.: Dec 24, 1890. p. 5 (1 page)
_The Churchman:_ (...)

manufacturers, and from which clothing is often sent out leaded with the infection of
small-pox and typhus.
