This is to inform you that I am headed to the New York colony next month. From a choice of many colonies in America, I have chosen the New York colony due to a number of reasons. I will elaborate these reasons shortly.
The New York colony presents better opportunities for European immigrants than any other colony in America.
In terms of transport, there are many natural harbors that our ship can dock. These harbors have been there for many years as they facilitated trade between America and other parts of the world and especially European nations. In New York, there is plenty of arable land for farming, this is contrary to our country in Europe where land is scanty and the soils are poor. In most of the other colonies, the farms are small and can only provide opportunities for subsistence farming. As a German male citizen, I prefer to live in the New York colony rather than any other colonies in America.
Each colony in America has its unique characteristics. Due to religious coercion and scarcity of land in Germany, many people have been forced out of their country. Many German immigrants have already arrived and settled in British colonies of America mainly Pennsylvania and Newyork.There are many reasons for this immigration ranging from religious freedom to economic opportunities greater than those which are available in Europe. Many of these immigrants are attracted by productive land because they are farmers and the existence of natural harbors has also facilitated trade with other European nations.
Religion in the Newyork colony is rather individualistic and diverse, ranging from Lutheran, Catholics and Protestants. This colony is secular and allows diverse range of religion. It established laws and moral codes based on these secular ideologies. The immigrants make their living by cultivating crops like corn (eaten by both people and animals), vegetables, wheat, and tobacco, among others.
The fur trade has also attracted immigrants to the Newyork colony. Most of the European immigrants are engaged in this trade since there is a wide market in the colony. Farming also ranges from domestic to commercial agriculture.Farm products are sold to other colonies and even European nations for profit.Other farmers grow crops and raise cattle to sustain their families. An example of colonial Newyork farm is the Philipsburg manor, owned by Anglo-Dutch merchant which is located in the Sleepy Hollow. The Phillipsburg leases land to occupant farmers who grow crops and raise livestock for export.
Concerning religion, there was is no exact religion in this colony. The people practice various religions because of religious pluralism. The Protestants are the majority but there are also other religious groups like Muslim, Jewish, Baptist, the Episcopal and Presbyterian. There is also the non religious group that accommodates those without a religion.
The Newyork government is organized in such a way that the self government display, has given rise to privileges and a share in the government. The people are granted liberty provided that they submit to their rulers .Although people in the colony pay taxes, they are represented in the government and no tax is introduced without the approval of the assembly .There is also the establishment of a revolutionary state government in Newyork colony. This colony is administered by a governor with advice from the council appointed by the governor.
About education, considerable efforts have been made to educate the young. In the other colonies education is private and affordable only to the rich and there is no public school system in some of these colonies. The effort to educate the youth in the newyork colony is quite praiseworthy.
In the field of medicine, the Newyork colony has made huge advancements compared to the other colonies, for instance there exist medical colleges and many drugs for curing diseases. There are also many hospitals that are run by government and missions and serve the entire population. This has made the New York colony quite habitable by foreign immigrants.
In conclusion, based on the facts and evidence provided, it is quite significant to note that there has been a lot of advancement in the Newyork colony as compared to other colonies. These advancement have been observed in various sectors of the economy such as education, medicine, agriculture and transport among other sectors.
