REPORT F.

AGRICULTURE

Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the Convention:

We, your Committee on Agriculture, do most respectfully report that, in all portions of this great State, our people are purchasing land and converting the same into neat farms, thereby giving evidence of thrift and prosperity. We would, therefore, recommend that this Convention set forth and discuss such measures as will encourage every colored man to own a home, so that he need be no longer "a hewer of wood and drawer of water." the possession of land properly cultivated indicates wealth and honor.

Respectfully submitted:

A. F. JACKSON,

W. R. LEWIS,

H. G. MADISON,

T. HODGES.
