beside After having a daily tussle with an unruly cow until she learned I was her mistress who would milk her and after struggling with a cultivator until I got the furrows reas onably do you think I was first asked when I finally reached a farm the family That was all There was more than a hint of dis may In the voice of a young girl whose first plunge Into farmerettlng had been a chilly the
