Excerpt from Transactions of the Essex Agricultural Society: For 1851 Other impositions were made on the cultivators, of a most aggravated character. The expense of maintaining the highways was so great as entirely to exhaust the resources of great numbers of them, and reduce them to want; and the whole mass of restrictions, and interference and exactions in various forms, was so great as to discourage industry, repress hope, and throw insurmountable obstacles in the way of all agricultural progress. The system of tenantry in Great Britain is as favorable to the interests of the farmer as in any part of Europe. The influence of freedom, humanity and religion, has been felt up on this branch of her institutions as well as on all others and although the art of agriculture has made rapid advance in lat er times, and been carried to a high point of improvement, it is yet, probably, far behind what it would have reached if its exercise had been united with an independent occupancy of the soil.
