9151. WINES, Making.—[further continued].

We could, in the United
States, make as great a variety of wines as are
made in Europe, not exactly of the same kinds,
but doubtless as good. Yet I have ever observed
to my countrymen, who think its introduction
important, that a laborer cultivating
wheat, rice, tobacco, or cotton here, will be
able with the proceeds, to purchase double the
quantity of the wine he could make.—
To M. Lasteyrie. Washington ed. v, 314.
