Notes

"Issued March 1920. Revised March 1935." -- p. 2. "This bulletin is designed to aid the prospective buyer or renter in the choice of a farm. It is written for those who already have had some experience in farming, rather than for the uninitiated, and is intended primarily to afford suggestions to the farmer whose training has been rather limited, or to the more experienced man who contemplates moving to an unfamiliar locality or changing to an unfamiliar type of farming. It is assumed that no one wholly without experience in farming would be so rash as to choose a farm on the strength of knowledge gleaned merely from a bulletin on the subject." -- p. 2
