From New Hampshire Sentinel, 12 June 1834, p.2
Contributed by  Bill Page

A gentleman writing from Cumming, Forsyth Co., Geo., to the editor of the Milledgeville Times, says:   The locusts in countless millions cover the land, though at this village there are none, within one mile and throughout the north and west sections of the country, their deafening notes remind one of the plagues of Egypt. So numerous are they, the swine become fat upon them; the native Indian gathers them by the quart, and pronounces them the greatest.
