1326. CLIMATE OF VIRGINIA.—[further continued].

I find nothing anywhere
else, in point of climate, which Virginia need
envy to any part of the world. Here [northern
New York] they are locked up in snow and ice
for six months. Spring and autumn, which
make a paradise of our country, are rigorous
winter with them; and a tropical summer breaks
on them all at once. When we consider how
much climate contributes to the happiness of
our condition, by the fine sensations it excites,
and the productions it is the parent of, we have
reason to value highly the accident of birth in
such a one as that of Virginia.—
To Martha Jefferson Randolph. Ford ed., v, 338.
