Excerpt from The Practical Sugar Planter: A Complete Account of the Cultivation and Manufacture of the Sugar-Cane, According to the Latest and Most Improved Processes; Describing and Comparing the Different Systems Pursued in the East and West Indies and the Straits of Malacca, and the Relative E
As far as small treatises, essays, and pamphlets go, there have been at least some score written within the last few years; three-fourths of which were called forth by the prizes offered by the Earl of Elgin, the late Governor of Jamaica. This excellent nobleman addressed himself to the experience and intelligence of the planters themselves, and liberally gave two prizes, of one hundred pounds each, for the best practical treatises; the one on the cultivation, and the other on the manufacture of the sugar-cane plant. Eight of these I had the honour of receiving as a present from the Royal Agricultural Society of Jamaica.
Whilst these were being written in the W'est, I was prevailed on to furnish the agri-horticultural Society of India, with a small treatise applicable to the East Indies which accordingly appeared in that Society's journal, and gained for me a vote of thanks, and the liberal award of three hundred Company's rupees.
