Review: Third Person Rural: Further Essays of a Sometime Farmer

User Review  - Shelly - Goodreads

Page ix - The severest cold of our winters never kills any of our young trees, and seldom freezes any of our young cattle, although they are not housed during the winter. Nor is the cold so affecting to the human body, as the extremes and sudden changes from heat to cold on the seacoast.
