Book Description Rarebooksclub.com, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 246 x 189 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1824 Excerpt: .does not seem to be so uncertain as it is, more or less, with the greater part of our active farmers. In the character of a French farmer there is not that indefatigable pursuit of his employment, without which, in England, a farmer cannot get on. The English farmer is full of care: he cannot do without money, and, to make that, work must he done by somebody. The French farmer has less to do with money. Comparatively speaking, he has scarcely any call for money. The demands upon his purse are not so large and so frequent: and, consequently, his strivings to obtain money are not so unremitting and so laborious. His land is cultivated with less anxiety to himself; and if the oxen that turn it over fall away, it is not for want of time enough to chew their end. There are no gentlemen farmers in Fiance. There are no fanners here that do not, with their own hands, do some part of all the work that is done upon their farms. A farmer, in France, works at the head of his men; and, while in the fields, he does not, in his dress, seem to be any thing more than a foreman in the business about which he is engaged. In short, to say gentlemati farmer in French, would be incongruous: it would be putting two words together which would have, in such conjunction, no meaning; no sort of practical sense. 138. A great part of the ploughing, and other ordinary work upon a farm, in this part of France, is done by mules and asses, parti eularly by the latter of these animals, which are here in very general use. I cannot see so many of these patient, gentle, laborious, useful, and cheaply-kept animals, without thinking of the just, the feeling, the beautiful eulogium pronounced on them by Buffon; nor can I behold the kind manner in which they are tre.
