Notes or transcript:  “We have read of a few instances where wealthy farmers have notified their renters that they owed no rent for this year. They had gone over the situation and observed the poor condition of the crops and instead of taking it from the renters they told them they were welcome to what was there. In some instances as is the ‘occasional custom’ the landlord held a mortgage upon the renter’s teams and farming implements as an additional security. This they also released. Nobel men! – Excelsior Springs Standard.”
