It is difficult to see how an employer can expect full and faithful labor on his plantation for the simple necessaries of life as a renumeration, and it is still more difficult to see, if such a system of renumeration was to be continued, how the laborers when they become old and worn out can provide for themselves. _ Such contracts will not be approved by this Bureau for next year. _ The accompanying circular is furnished for your information and guidance in making future contracts.
