Excerpt from The Agricultural Museum, 1811, Vol. 1: Designed to Be a Repository of Valuable Information to the Farmer and Manufacturer, and the Mean of a Free Communication of Sentiment, and General Interchange of Ideas, on the Important Subjects of Their Occupation
By a successful cultivation of agriculture, innumerable are the advantages that are derived to human society Nay, all ranks and species of created beings are affected or supported by it. Manufactures are grafted on it, as that repleping stock, which supplies pourishment to all their di erent and extensive branches. It is the life of industry, and it is the soul of economy; it is thatart which alone lays the foundation for a plentiful supply to-the va rious necessities of the poor, by affording them constant employment, and exciting their industry, from which must result a consequent security to government. Few states whose poor people are constantly employed, well fed, clothed, paid, and properly encouraged by kind treatment: are ever afflicted with discontents, insurrections or rebel lions. But on the othe1 hand, when they are depressed for want of employment, they become idle, lazy, indolent and necessitousw-and it is from the starved part of every community, that we may everlook for danger; their idler ness gives time to invent, and their necessities push them forward, with a courage sharpened by despair, to perpe trate acts of the most daring criminality.
