AbstractAmong the treasured items of the Rutgers Library's collection on agricultural history is a manuscript exceptionallv rich in data on colonial agriculture. It is a miscellany of notes, observations, records, and comments kept by Charles Read, prominent citizen of New Jersey for about thirty years prior to the Revolution. The entries are made on interleavings bound into a volume of Sy sterna Agriculturae, by the English writer John Worlidge, the third edition, enlarged (London, 1681). In addition, there are copious notes on the margins of Worlidge's text. Altogether, when copied, the notes occupy more than 150 typed pages.
