This section is from the book "The Gardener's Monthly And Horticulturist V18", by Thomas Meehan. See also: Four-Season Harvest: Organic Vegetables from Your Home Garden All Year Long.
The Country Gentleman, one of whose editors recently made a visit to Mr. Meehan's nursery, at Germantown, has a kind reference to the fact that in the seventeen years of Mr. Meehan's editorship of the Gardener's Monthly, no one would gather from anything in its reading columns that he had anything to sell. This arises from the fact that Mr. Meehan has no ownership in the Gardener's Monthly. He is simply engaged by the owner and publisher to edit it in the interest of Horticulture, and it would be manifestly improper to use his position for his own personal ends. The Country Gentleman has our best thanks for its generous notice of the fact.
