Excerpt from The Genesee Farmer, 1857, Vol. 18: A Monthly Journal Devoted to Agriculture and Horticulture, Domestic and Rural Economy
And in view of these facts, for facts they are, we are led to wonder that so many of our young men are placed behind the counter to learn the arts and mysteries of the scales and yard-stick, to deprive themselves of the bloom and the freshness of youth, and bring early and deep furrows of care and anxiety on their brows, by the difficulties and perplexities attending the prosecution of mercantile pursuits, when so many and so strong inducements are held out for them to engage in that profession which was the earliest employment of man, and which, as the light of science is spread abroad, and improvements are made in the art, is becoming more interesting, more profitable, and at the same time less laborious.
