Page 92 - ... people had become unable to buy them, except in very insufficient quantities, there was a great and urgent need of something to replace the cotton seed, and restore to the soil those chief ingredients, indispensable to the production of a good cotton crop — phosphoric acid, or soluble phosphates. In this emergency came the discovery of those natural deposits. , Already too much space has been given to the effort to report faithfully the condition of the cotton culture of the United States,...

A description of them and of the circumstances leading to their discovery will be found in the Appendix C, in a letter from Dr. NA Pratt, whose researches, aided by others, have opened up a treasure whose value cannot now be measured. This store of phosphates, thus prepared in nature's laboratory and laid up until the day of special need, contains just the chemical properties wanted for the cotton plant, and which the cotton seed had been abstracting from the soil. So long as cotton...
