The Creed - Part 2

I believe that to live and work on a good farm, or to be engaged in other agricultural pursuits, is pleasant as well as challenging; for I know the joys and discomforts of agricultural life and hold an inborn fondness for those associations which, even in hours of discouragement, I can not deny.


The creed part 3
The Creed - Part 3

I believe in leadership from ourselves and respect for others.

The creed part 4
The Creed - Part 4

I believe in less dependence on begging and more power in bargaining; in the life abundant and enough honest wealth to help make it so-for other as well as myself; in less need for charity and more of it when needed; in being happy myself and playing square with those whose happiness depends upon me.


The creed part 5
