Overview
They hardly belong to us, is a motto doubly applicable to the book now in the readers hand. In the first place, its subject, Flax and Hemp, in consequence of gradual neglect, can scarcely be admitted, except by courtesy, to enter the list of English agricultural produce. When they do appear upon the land, they are looked upon as curiosities rather than as crops. And secondly, its matter, derived from various sources of information, from practical men as well as from theoretical treatises, is therefore not to be claimed by the writer the virgin produce of his own creation. Be sets the part of a sober historian, in only pretending to relate and arrange existing facts and authorities, rather than that of a speculative politician, who imagines new erents and combinations. Still, almost all the details described have been repeatedly performed before his eyes while those with which he is less familiar have been verified by consulting competent persons. The implements for the preparation of flax, as here described and figured, are probably published for the first time. Of their utility, no more need be said than that they are the only ones which a good French workman ill look at and that they differ widely from those known at home. That flax and hemp are not our om, is a deficiency in our yearly hmest, which is even less lamentable than to to be wondered at.......
