Overview

Not illustrated. 1865 Excerpt: ...of evidence to deal with. What could the tenant have done, but take the men whom he has brought before you?

And just think that there were potatoes grown on the neighbouring farm of Palmerton to profit, and there were potatoes on the neighbouring farms of Cocklaw and Branxton, and on Mr Miller's field of Cromwellhall. That is the kind of evidence which is presented in this case for the pursuer. The defender, on the other hand, brought witnesses from Edinburgh, a different kind of district altogether, where much larger quantities of manure are used, and where, as I have explained already, the manure is not only put on to the extent of onehalf more, but they all regarded potatoes as a preparatory crop--not being taken so much for themselves as to make the land fitted for the after-crops. Now, these are considera-Mr Gifford, tions upon which I ask ...
