N. v. State Agricultural Society,
ABSTRACT OF THE PROCEEDINGS
COUNTY AGRICULTURAL SOCIETIES,
B. P. JOHNSON'S REPORT
INDUSTRIAL EXHIBITION, LONDON, 1851.
CHARLES VAN BENTHUYSEN, PRINTER TO THE LEGISLATURE,
In presenting the Eleventh Volume of the Transactions of the Society to the farmers of the State, it is believed that it will be found to contain matter of deep interest to all. That there is progress making in the different branches of Agriculture in our State, cannot be questioned. The volume which is now presented contains the history of what is doing, and suggestions for further adFancement.
There are valuable papers contained in this volume from practical men, which cannot fail to arrest the attention of farmers. The results of drainage, so fully and clearly set forth, will have an effect upon the practice of our farmers throughout the State, and will lead to vast improvement.
The increased interest which is manifested in the subject of Agriculture is most gratifying—and the demand which is made for the Transactions of the State Society, shows that the operations of the farmers of New-York are interesting the people of our own country not only, but those of distant lands. The report of the undersigned, to his Excellency Gov. Hunt, on the Industrial Exhibition in England, is annexed to the Transactions of the Society pursuant to a resolution of the Legislature.
The subscriber has been greatly aided in the preparation of this volume by gentlemen in different parts of the State, and it is submitted to the public, with an earnest desire that it may contribute to the advancement of one of the greatest interests of our State and nation, that of Agriculture.
B. P. JOHNSON, Agricultural Rooms, March, 1852.
