Many people in the North dwelled longer because of the cleaner water and the cooler temperatures which slowed down the dispersing of infections. whereas to the north colonies were cooler, the dirt was not fertile; therefore the finances of New to the north was run by manufacturing. Such things as trade, lumber and angling were the primary source of earnings.
