In the year 1696, bound from Bombay to Charleston, in the just-founded colony of the Carolinas, a ship was becalmed and obliged to make port on the coast of Madagascar, where it obtained a supply of a very superior quality of rice, large and full in the grain. The Dutch captain, on arriving in Charleston, made Governor Thomas Smith a present of a half bushel which remained over. The governor, instead of using it himself, divided it among his friends to plant in their gardens. The new plant succeeded admirably, and from this small beginning has sprung the extensive rice culture of North and South Carolina and Georgia, whose grain still retains its superiority in the markets of the world.
