Excerpt from Introduction and Early Progress of the Cotton Manufacture in the United States
When our attention is called to the history of the Cotton Manufacture, we cannot fail to be struck with the change that has taken place, both in this country and in Europe, during the life of a single generation. Nor is this change confined to those actually em ployed in the business, but extends to the habits, occupation, and condition Of a great proportion Of the population.
It was only by reason Of a fortunate con currence of several improvements in labor saving machinery that such an extension of the cultivation and manufacture of cotton was rendered possible.
