Fruitful land

Taming of the Shrew, [2.1.360-367]. Tranio. “Sir, list to me:/ I am my father’s heir and only son,/ If I may have your daughter to my wife,/ I’ll leave her houses three or four as good,/ Within rich Pisa walls, as any one/ Old Signior Gremio has in Padua,/ Besides two thousand ducats by the year/ Of fruitful land, all which shall be her jointure./ What, have I pich’d you, Signior Gremio?”
