This section was visited by a very heavy rain on Friday 30th. Grass was quite vigorous before but will take on a new life since the rain.
Corn is exceedingly small and a very bad stand; bud worms have played havoc with it during the late cold snap.
Cotton is recuperating slowly from the effects of the late frost. Fruit does not seem to have suffered from the effects of the frost, except figs, which were killed.
Tobacco transplanting is being pushed by Col. McCutchen and Dr J.S. Cunningham, whom, I think, are the only tobacco planters left in this section.
