This can't carry on, Matt…
Since you replaced the fruit plantations with cattle pastures there's not enough work for everyone. And now you've decided to leave half the weat fields fallow, we can't hold on, Matt.
The national overproduction of wheat is too big already, Reb. As for the fruit plantations, they were getting less and less profitable. It's just a case of return per acre.
The problem is that it's YOUR return per acre that puts food on OUR table.
At least you could let us work on the the 4,000 acres of fallow land out by the marshes.
That's a no.
