Tarnet Garonne

Tarn-et-Garonne, a department of Southern France, lying to the N.W. of Tarn, and traversed from S.E. to N.W. by the Garonne with its tributaries Tarn and Aveyron. The surface has tablelands varying in height from 1,000 to 1,600 feet, and the climate is temperate. The chief productions are corn, wine, honey, fruit, hemp, and lithographic stones; and the principal industries are the manufacture of silk, paper, candles, and soap. The capital is Montauhan, near the junction of the Garonne and Aveyron, and there are three arrondissements.

“Are you dejected? here is comfort. Are you sinful? here is righteousness. Are you led away with present enjoyments? here you have honours, and pleasures, and all in Christ Jesus. You have a right to common pleasures that others have, and besides them you have interest in others that are everlasting, that shall never fail; so that there is nothing that is dejecting and abasing in man, but there is comfort for it in Christ Jesus.”
–Richard Sibbes, Description of Christ
