AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A man tells of a girl who married an agriculturist who did not do well. She urged her husband to pursue dairy farming and although he refused he allowed her to have some of their land to raise a few cows. She eventually killed herself working so hard in the home, bringing up their daughter as well as taking all responsibility in her ever increasing dairy business.
