Tecumseh

Letter from E. B. Brown to Gen. Joseph Brown

where Evans had been employed by him; and you, as a practical miller and farmer of large experience, whose superiority as an agriculturist had been recognized by the agricultural society of Jefferson county, N. Y., when they presented you with a certificate and premium of a silver pitcher for the best farm in the county; and numerous other premiums for superiority in many of its attendant details. All of you were men of great energy, business capacity and physical endurance. All these various accomplishments were combined in your company, and were exerted for the benefit and good of the new country in which you were making new homes. I say for the benefit and good of the country, because the pioneers lose sight of self in their efforts to open for the good of the world a wilderness such as Michigan was when you moved into it. He becomes, in the largest sense of the word a philanthropist, prompted' with the wish and hopes for gain in the first instance; but these wishes, and hopes eventually become swallowed up in the efforts made to improve the country, and he sacrifices to the general good his labor, time" and money.
