And he slept, and dreamed the second time
He fell asleep again quickly, and dreamed another dream the same night, and to the same purpose, being much of the like kind with the former: and, behold, seven ears of corn came up upon one stalk, rank and good;
which were very uncommon even in those fruitful countries; though Dr. Shaw F5 observes of Barbary, which vied with Egypt for fruitfulness, that it sometimes happens that one stalk of wheat will bear two ears, while each of these ears will as often shoot out into a number of lesser ones, thereby affording a most plentiful increase.
