Excerpt from The Young Farmer's Manual, Vol. 2: Or, How to Make Farming Pay, Giving Plain and Practical Details of General Farm Management; With a Chapter on Soils, and Their Cultivation, and Much Other Valuable Matter of a Practical Character
The first volume of "The Young Farmer's Manual" treats of Mechanical Agriculture, and should be read with this, as it is intimately connected with it. The first chapter of this volume is made up of brief articles on the General Management of the Farm. The chapters on Soils, Pulverization, and Fertilizers, are as brief as they can be, in order to give a young farmer a thorough understanding of that branch of agriculture. A good knowledge of these branches lies at the very foundation of a good system of Farming.
My first volume was written while I lived on a farm near Lake Ridge. Tompkins County, N. Y., where I was born, and resided until I was forty years of age. From Lake Ridge I removed to Auburn, N. Y. In the former part of 1865, I moved my family to New York City. Read the Preface to Volume I.
I have endeavored to reduce the "scientific" to practice; and I think no intelligent reader will fail, with a dictionary, to get a correct idea on every subject, as I have aimed at simplicity of style.
The instructions of this volume will be found well adapted to any portion of the United States and Canada, and even to European agriculture.
