Now this furnishment that Norcross and the other plantation owners provided, tell me about how they would get this furnish, about how they would go to the store, and the plantation owner would own the store, and all that. So, can you explain that to me?


They ordinarily would go the bank, and get the money, borrow the money from the bank in a lot of cases. In a lot of cases the owner furnished it, and maybe gave them a discount, so they'd make money off of that, too.
