They do not selfishly aim to put on the general market of the world an article which shall drive others out because it is the best and cheapest of its kind. Their ethics teach them simply to provide each settlement with some industry which shall make it self-supporting.

It would have been ludicrous, if it had not been pathetic, to hear the exhortations to saints who had been told off to Southern settlements where the desert had failed to blossom as the rose, and the torrid sun had disordered their livers. They were reminded that they looked upon their prospects with jaundiced eyes, and assured that it was only the weakness of their faith which made them fail to see the means of subsistence at their feet.
