4990. MANUFACTURES, Agriculture, commerce and.—[continued].

An equilibrium of agriculture,
manufactures and commerce, is certainly
become essential to our independence.
Manufactures sufficient for our own consumption,
of what we raise the raw material (and
no more). Commerce sufficient to carry the
surplus produce of agriculture, beyond our
own consumption, to a market for exchanging
it for articles we cannot raise (and no more).
These are the true limits of manufactures and
commerce. To go beyond them is to increase
our dependence on foreign nations, and our
liability to war. These three important
branches of human industry will then grow
