The author offers insights on farming and gambling in Great Britain. He emphasizes that his wheat yielded worse than what he expected and the price of the crop almost reached his target. He mentions his plan to continue planting Maris Otter barley which trades well if the wheat price is £120/ton. He cites the need for gambling companies in the region to comply with the Gambling Bill to prevent unfair competition.
