Excerpt from The Monthly Review, or Literary Journal, Enlarged, Vol. 49: From January to April, Inclusive, 1806 There are two other sorts of cotton cultivated in America, the one growing upon a kind of shrub, and the other on a large tree full of thorns. These species are mentioned by Bernardin de St. Pierre, 'hui: are not known in Malta. The cotton-tree in India is handsome, and grows to a great height it shoots afresh during five years before there is a necessity of replanting it. That which grows in the Antil les must be planted every two years, and is not so tall as the former, but it produces very fine cotton of a beautiful yellow.'
