The author suggests that the American South is ideal for the creation of agricultural settlements for Russian Jewish immigrants. The South is a healthy living environment with great potential for succesful development in the areas of agriculture, horticulture, and livestock. Land is available relatively cheaply, and cost of living is low. The spread of manufacturing industries in the South also promises economic viability.
