Here I will endeavor to be brief; I feel anxious to get through with

this disagreeable part, where every word I say will clash with

somebody's interest or prejudice. The merits of this hive are to obtain

surplus honey with but little trouble, which often succeeds in

satisfying people of its utility. The principal objection is found on

the score of profit. Suppose we start with one, call it worth five

dollars in the beginning, at the end of ten years it is worth no more,

very likely not as much, (the chances of its failing, short of that

time, we will not take into the account;) we might get annually, say

five dollars worth of surplus honey, amounting to fifty dollars.
