Title

Letter from Barthelemi Tardiveau to St. John de Crevecoeur, 25 May 1789

Description

Tardiveau discusses his activities in Kentucky, including in Danville, events occurring there, the state of agriculture and climate for certain crops, especially as compared to Cumberland (Tennessee), Society for Kentucky Manufacturers, and the economic future of Kentucky and the United State in general. Tardiveau also writes that he has learned that John Brown is held in great esteem by the people of Kentucky. His friends want him to take on a political career and competent people believe he is inferior only to James Madison in his legal ability. He reminds Crevecoeur that living in Kentucky they are "banished to the other end of the earth," and that no dependable news reaches them. He therefore asks Crevecoeur to go into heavy detail about what is happening in Europe, specifically France.
