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.
In a recent issue we find the following:
"The Gardener's Monthly and Horticulturist, an excellent journal, in giving the condensation of an article of ours, credits it thus indefinitely - 'A Boston paper gives the following,' etc. There are several papers published in Boston; hence it might not be easy for the reader to determine which one was referred to."
We did not know this was an original contribution to the columns of our good neighbor, or should certainly have given it credit. We supposed it to be made up from some Boston daily. The moral obligation to " credit" is confined to " exchange" ethics we believe, - though it is our custom to credit for information, even if we pay for it the full subscription price.
