Excerpt from Address of Hon.: Allen G. Thurman Delivered Before the Maryland Agricultural and Mechanical Association
To speak of the importance of agriculture would be as superfluous as to speak of the importance of the atmosphere. Man cannot live without air or without food, and the pursuit that furnishes the latter needs no rhetoric to demonstrate its value. Nor would it be much less futile to dilate upon the importance of the mechanic arts; for that which is obvious needs no proof. Were I speaking to barbarians whose inventive faculties had produced nothing but rude instruments of war and of the chase, and the simplest of domestic utensils, it would be well to show them that better works than theirs can be fabricated by the skill of man. But I address an audience acquainted not only with the common implements of husbandry and the arts, but familiar with those wonderful inventions of genius that seem more like revelations of omniscience than productions of the finite faculties of man.
