Yellow uses a Liverpool card to build a Tech Level 3 Port on the 1st industry space in Liverpool. For his second action, he uses a Barrow - In - Furness card to sell cotton from his Tech 3 Cotton Mill on the 2nd space in Bolton via his own Tech 3 Port on the 1st space in Liverpool.
That to me sounds like two actions (a build, then a sale); read-on:
He then sells cotton from his Tech 3 Cotton Mill on the 2nd space in Manchester via his own Tech 2 Port on the 2nd space in Warrington & Runcorn.
That is action #3, another sale; read-on:
He then sells cotton from his Tech 3 Cotton Mill on the 3rd space in Manchester via the Distant Market. The tile drawn is -2; this leaves the demand marker on the 1st +2 space. He is then obliged to end his Sell action.
That is action #4, another sale;
Am I losing it? If not, please tell me how to do this.

When you sell cotton, you can sell as many cotton as you want up to the number of unflipped mills you have on the board.

wow, did I ever miss that in the rules; Time to re-read Brass, I wonder what else I'm missing?

One additional caveat: If you are selling to Distant Markets, you pull the DM tile before you actually sell, and if the cotton demand marker hits bottom as a result of the pull, your mill does *not* flip and your selling ends immediately. So you have to time the sales through flipped ports vs. sales to Distant Markets to avoid being cut short.
