Rosicky is worried about his son Rudolph, who rents a farm not too far from Rosicky’s. Rudolph has recently married Polly, a woman from town whom the Rosickys describe as ‘‘American,’’ meaning her parents are not recent immigrants. Polly has found the transition from being a single woman living in town to married life on a farm difficult.
