Referring to the low price of potatoes, James Caird in 1852 wrote: ‘There could be no greater evil befall the English agricultural labourer, than that any circumstance could compel him to depress his standard of comfort so far as to be content for his principal subsistence with the lowest species of food in this country, the potato’ (Salaman 1949:518-19).
