GEORGE: No, you stick to it, Emily. I'm glad you spoke to me like you did.
But you'll see: I'm going to change so quick - you bet I'm going to change.
And, Emily, I want to ask you a favour.
GEORGE: Emily, if I go away to State Agriculture College next year, will you write me a letter once in a while?
Emily: I certainly will. I certainly will, George. ...(Pause) It certainly seems like being away three years you'd get out of touch with things.
GEORGE: No, no. I mustn't do that. You see I'm not only going to be just a farmer. After a while maybe I'll run for something to get elected. So your letters'll be very important to me; you know, telling me what's going on here and everything ...
