Small grants for the bedding of the catch at Wellfleet. Under the Acts of 1904, the inhabitants of Eastham, Orleans and Wellfleet have the privilege of staking off not over 75 feet square of flat for bedding the catch, when the prices are low. During dull seasons many bushels of "blunts" are planted until the price becomes satisfactory. This may be termed the first step toward quahaug culture. Note the quahaugs in the center, which are sill uncovered.
