W. C. L. D., El Dorado, Cal., says: "In July number one of the Monthly's correspondents desires to know who originated the Sunray Fuchsia. It originated with a Mr. Rudd. I think it a very desirable Fuchsia. The Monthly I consider at the head of all papers or magazines of its class, and its great popularity I believe entirely due to its untiring and devoted Editor."

[The Editor does take a pride in his work - but never forgets how much he owes to his extensive circle of correspondents. These make a good paper as much as a good Editor. - Ed. G. M.]
