By referring to the June number, 1874, page 166, you will find notes about "Mrs. Pince's Muscat Grape." I now send by express a bunch of the same, an average one of twenty-two. I do this because I then said, "As to its keeping qualities it will fulfil the most extravagant wish; as to its flavor, it is not that of the Muscat of Alexandra." At that time it was a "cold grapery;" now a part embracing the Mrs. P. is heated, and as a consequence its substance and flavor is vastly improved. For its unapproachable keeping qualities it ought to find a place in every establishment where late grapes are desired.
