Quandary Resolution 2561
usufruct, armigerous, savant, prescience
When youthful Sir Jacob was imparted the usufruct to the farmland estate and demesne of his uncle, the Lord Baron Critch, few in the fiefdom denied his advantage rested on his fealty and armigerous status (over others' lesser heraldry of name), but better for the fief's value as he was an agriculture savant and – as proud serfs would later reveal – as close to being prescient about next week’s thunderstorm as the tomato yield next spring.
