I bought this place in 1897. Me and my old woman work hard and paid for it.   Now we are old and can hardly work at all, and can’t pay the taxes. They   haven’t put us out yet, but I am going to stay here as long as they let me. I   am 86 years old and my wife is 75. No, all my children are dead, just me and   my old woman here.
