D. S. M., Bridgeville, Del., writes: "I sent you by mail two peaches, a new Delaware seedling. We call it Kinnaman's Seedling, originated with L. Kinnaman, of Sussex county, Del. A tree now eight years old, healthy tree. Other years the peaches were eight inches around, but it has been so cool. Peaches small; I think it will prove somewhat earlier than Amsden or Alexandra".
[There is so much resemblance in all these small early peaches, that all we can fairly say of it is that it is a sub-cling and as good as other popular candidates for peach favors. Its exact value will depend on careful observations with other rivals in the field. - Ed. G. M].
