Governor Gil's efforts to woo Daisy are as futile as his continual assaults with his walking stick on the weeds in his cotton. Daisy, in her "slimsy gingham jumper" with nothing underneath Caldwell's favorite sartorial detail , is as resilient as the weeds.
Her father, who has encouraged the match as an escape for Daisy from a life of field labor--"tomorrow and every day as long as cotton grows"--nevertheless enjoys his landlord's violent rejection. The final exchange in the story is an impotent threat by the Governor to cut off his tenant's head; however, the fact that it is delivered by a nervous black houseboy, apprehensive of carrying an insult from one white to another, hints at even more tangled loyalties in this society than those between landlord and tenant.
The social texture of the Maine stories seems thin by comparison with this and their comedy derives more narrowly from tall-tale incidents: a bull-headed salmon towing George Hopkins' corpse down a lake like a speed-boat, or Carl Abbott setting fire to his wooden leg in a stubborn effort to burn over his hayfield.
