Overview
Excerpt from The Bee-Keeper's Handy Book: Or Twenty-Two Years' Experience, in Queen-Rearing, Containing the Only Scientific and Practical Method of Rearing Queen Bees, and the Latest and Best Methods for the General Management of the Apiary
It may not be out of place for me to give tho reasons that induced me to assume the position of author and give to the bee-keeping fraternity a work of this kind. 1 had been engaged in queen-rearing but a few years when I became convinced that the system then in vogue was faulty and that a much better method was needed and might be devised. With this object in view I at once instituted a series of experiments which, I am happy to say, have been crowned with success, even beyond my most sanguine expectations, and I am now able to present to my fellow bee-keepers a system which is both scientific and practical.
After so many years of arduous toil and study in perfecting this method, I felt that it was no more than just that I be reasonably remunerated for my labors and for the knowledge that I had gleaned from my long experience in queen-rearing; consequently I decided to publish my method in book-form, trusting to the hearty response of the bee-keeping fraternity for remuneration.
