Notes:
Delmar Hatesohl Collection, Companion articles here. The first presents this poem inviting patience and wisdom in addressing the prices the farmer is receiving, as compared with prices of other things people buy. The follow-up letter to the editor suggested that whoever penned it was "preying" on ignorance and appealing to emotionalism.
