Hap circles another portion on the map

Hap : Now i figure there’s a couple acres right here.

Florence : If only fences can be put up with lead.

Hap : They get taken down with lead all the time.

Ruel : Wont be too much longer, papa, will it? Around this time next year, im gonna have me about 50 acres of cotton, 50 acres of oats, 50 acres of rice,

Hap : Never call your brother a fool.

Ruel : im gonna grow some anyway.

Lil–May : That’s why im not gonna be no farmer. Im gonna be stenographer.
