Deforo tho war the re were two
classes of white people in this
country. Thc large negro own

owned a few or no slave . The
former class, ifengagod at all in agri
culture, were called planters, and i
t he latter farmers* The farmer wa -
synonymous with plodder, or one i
who follows tho plow, lint now j
things have changed. Oil A.NT J

tobe called farmer; now ia- rejoices
