I remember learning something about this at college. Fustian is a mixture of cotton and linen ( i googled that too, just like empress).I think christi means 'repealed' which is to 'revoke', so it must have been some sort of reversal of law.

I have also Googled it and under the heading of "Bolton Bleachers and the Tax on Cotton Goods" is an interesting little piece.
