The whole of the second part is devoted to the cultivation of lucerne by transplantation. Both the man and his work were warmly admired by Samuel Johnson and Lord Chesterfield, as well as by Arthur Young, who remarked of him that "His conversation on the subject of husbandry is as full of experience and as truly solid as his genuine and active humour, extensive knowledge of mankind and admirable philanthropy are pleasing and instructive".
