Excerpt from A General Dictionary of Husbandry, Planting, Gardening, and the Vegetable Part of the Materia Medica, Vol. 1: With the Description, Use, and Medicinal Virtues of the Several Herbs, Flowers, Roots, &C. Selected From the Best Authorities

When we confider the great advantages of Agriculture to mankind, we need not wonder to find so many books written on the subject; but we must own we wonder to find, that so many should have been written so badly; as if the simple operations of Nature in Vegetation were as obscure as Metaphysics or the Arcana of Chemistry. Hearsay is taken for ocular demonstration, and calculations made in the closet are printed as though they were the result of experience, or made from a real survey and the exact journal of a farmer: such works as these may amuse the apron-string farmer, or speculative student, but they will be laughed at by men of business and real understanding.

We have read some author who makes a distinction between learning and languages, and there is certainly a very essential difference between the learning of a practical observant farmer and the pedantic performances of a closeted Bookworm. Theory should always be founded on practice, - never should precede it; if it does, it will be more absurd than useful. Although it is not at all necessary for a farmer to understand Latin and Greek, yet we can see no reason why Latin and Greek should injure his ploughshare, or mildew his crops, provided he pays that attention to his business which the nature of that business requires.
