Excerpt from National System of Political Economy
From that time List gave himself up with ardor to the preparation of a work on Political Economy, of which he had completed the Intro' duction, when his labors were arrested by a fortunate occurrence.
This happy event was the discovery by List of the rich coal-measures since known as the Tamaqua mines. A company with a capital of was formed; the mines were opened; and to bring them into communication with the Schuylkill Canal, a railroad from Tamaqua to Port Clinton was projected by List. The business soon promised to be highly successful, and our Author's cares seemed to be at an end.
With more prosperous circumstances, List experienced the desire of revisiting his native country. Germany was at the bottom of all his plans. In the solitude of the Blue Mountains he dreamed of a network of railroads in a German Union. He left America in 1830, before the completion of the Tamaqua Railroad, undertaken at his suggestion.
