“I also saw sheep and cows eating grass; do you believe that?”

“Of course,” was again the reply.

“Well, the grass turned to feathers on the backs of the geese, to bristles on the backs of the swine, to white wool on the sheep, and to hair on the cow; do you believe that, gentlemen?”

“Certainly,” they replied.

“But do you understand it?”
