Notes:

(By Fred Morgan)

Mr. Fred. Morgan is as sunny as usual in his “Gleaners” (p. 119)

Gleaning means going into fields after the harvest and finding left-overs missed by the harvesters. When I was a child, in England, we had “gleaning rights” in a neighbouring field, and could go and collect wheat. This picture, then, shows two women picking up fallen ears of wheat (the main cereal crop in England) from the ground.
