H. D., Galesburg, Mich., sends us the following good note, received after our last went to press, with Mr. Downing's paragraph on the same subject: " In Editorial Notes of August number, Gardener's Monthly, it is stated that Benoni Apple originated in Ontario Co., N. Y., and Early Joe in Massachusetts. Should not this be reversed? I well remember seeing what purported to be the original Early Joe tree in East Bloomfield, Ontario Co., N. Y., and many times supposed I was eating fruit from the original tree".
