    Suggests establishing a hothouse at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew, to enable 'some curious plants of British growth' to survive in cold weather. Believes the 'agricultural labourer' is one of many 'productions of an English soil' which need to be preserved—in this case by a 'nice warm bed'. The illustration shows a farmer in a large pail of water.
