    Last spring a brother in the West sent me a supply of pea-beans,

    assuring me "they are very good." I planted them in

    rows similar to pea-planting and find they bloom and bear

    continuously from early summer until cut by frost in the

    fall. We are still picking them for table use at this date,

    October 14.

    We have more seed than we need. Am sending you a supply

    for such of THE TOWER readers as have garden space and may

    desire some to plant next spring. Should they wish to pay

    the postage on as many as you could apportion, that would,

    of course, be their privilege; I donate them.

    I might state, the stalk resembles a bean stalk, but within

    the long pods are peas, and suitable for cooking in the pods

    green, or, after ripening, shelled. They are tender and taste

    unlike beans or peas. We all like them. Until nearly ripe

    the pods are stringless or nearly so.

    In Christian love, your brother and servant in the Lord,

    J. A. BOHNET.

    this is after the miricle wheat i believe.

    I think I have some of those same beans.

    They are very prolific and I would be willing to trade some for a milk cow.

    Hope you don't think I'm too much off topic. Bohnet was largely responsible for my family being involved in the cult. It was around the turn of the 20th century. His proselytizing got two great great aunts involved, then it was my grandmother, then three of her children, including my mother, myself plus numerous cousins, and now it's several of my cousins' grandchildren. So there are at least 6 generations and there may be a 7th generation by now. Talk about the difficulty of breaking away from all these family bonds! It's been going on for over 100 years

    People lost interest in this bean as it was found to cause theoflatulitus.

    Hmmm .... are there any other kind of cows?

    :Hmmm .... are there any other kind of cows?

    You mean besides the JW girls who wanted to marry me when I was a teenager?

    J. A. BOHNET said once that "Miracle Wheat was provided to feed the elect during the time of distress."

    That wasn't true. He just pulled that statement out of thin air.

    Watchtower people have a long history of making things up.
