Evidence of cloth wiring?
To my knowledge non-metallic cable was never produced with 'cloth covered wiring' the wires inside this cable are in fact thermoplastic coated, most likely rated TW or THW and in 1958 had a ground bonding wire. Cloth covered wiring was predominately installed in armored cable (bx) and conduit. It wouldn't have made it into my report as a defect.

Let us never forget... Hillary Clinton won the Popular Vote.
