Persons with limited means will find it better to procure good instruments separately of any respectable maker, W. Stanley of Holborn for instance, as they may be able to afford them, than to purchase a complete set of inferior instruments in a case. Instruments may be carefully preserved by merely rolling them up in a piece of wash-leather, leaving space between them that they may not rub each other; or, what is better, having some loops sewn on the leather to slip each instrument separately under.
