8826. VINE, Cultivation of.—

The vine
is the parent of misery. Those who cultivate
it are always poor, and he who would employ
himself with us in the culture of corn, cotton,
&c., can procure, in exchange for them, much
more wine, and better, than he could raise by
its direct culture.—
To George Wythe. Washington ed. ii, 266. Ford ed., iv, 443.
(P. 1787)
