COLMAN, Henry, agricultural writer, born in Boston, 12 September, 1785; died in Islington, England, 14 August, 1849. He was graduated at Dartmouth in 1805. From 1807 till 1820 he was a Congregational minister at Hingham, Massachusetts, where he also taught school. He was a teacher in Boston in 1820-'5, and from 1825 till 1831 had charge of a Unitarian church in Salem, when he left, being in ill health. He then engaged in farming at Deer-field, Massachusetts, and was employed by the state, from 1886 till 1842, as commissioner to investigate its agricultural condition and resources. In 1838 and 1889 he issued reports on the agriculture of Massachusetts, and in 1840 published a "Report on Silk Culture." In 1842 he visited Europe in the employ of the Massachusetts agricultural society, and pursued investigations of European farming for six years. On his return, in 1848, he published in Boston "European Agricultural and Rural Economy," and a smaller work entitled "Agricultural and Rural Economy of France, Belgium, Holland, and Switzerland." He was the author also of "European Life and Manners, in Familiar Letters to Friends" (1849), and published two volumes of sermons. Visiting England again for his health in 1849, he died soon after his arrival.
