Beginning by declaring room for improvement in previous management techniques, the pseudonymous Country Curate encourages English readers to take up pursuit of beekeeping, not only for pecuniary profits, the author states, but for a “much higher” result. Like many a zealous apiphile, the Curate announces that he has yet to meet a beekeeper who was not a well respected and moral man.
