Item discusses the concern Ross has over the shortage of seed potatoes and grain. This situation was a result of several harsh winters that left the people with a shortage of hay, forcing them to feed the potatoes to the cattle. Request the governor to send a supply of grain and potatoes to the most needy of the inhabitants.
