6199. OLIVE, Oil.—

The oil of the olive
is an article the consumption of which will always
keep pace with its production. Raise it,
and it begets its own demand. Little is carried
to America because Europe has it not to
spare. We, therefore, have not learned the
use of it. But cover the Southern States with
it, and every man will become a consumer of
oil, within whose reach it can be brought in
point of price.—
To William Drayton. Washington ed. ii, 200.
(P. 1787)
