Mr. Olmsted writes: "In the article entitled 'Curves,' in the August number of the Gardener's Monthly, some errors have crept in which, if corrected, would make my meaning more evident. Page 228, 1st column, for ' suspended the former style,' read ' superseded,' etc.; for 'hardly admirable ' read ' hardly admissible'; for ' practical eye' read ' practiced eye.' On page 229, 1st column, second paragraph, for 'when most convenient' read ' where most convenient.' Same column, last paragraph, for A B - 80, B C! - 120, etc, read A B=80, B C=120, etc. And in second column, for a - 22.4 - 16 - 1.4 feet, read a = 22.4 divided by 16=1.4 feet.
"In my quotation from Ruskin in the article entitled ' Curves,' in the August number of the 3Ionthly, I am made to say 'there is no more flatness in the natural world than there is in vacancy.' What I meant to quote, and what Ruskin wrote, is ' there is no more flatness in the natural world than there is vacancy.'"
