Mrs. D. A., East Brookfield, Mass., says: "I have just read Mr. A. C's questions on page 293, Oct. number of the Monthly. His shrub-vine acts exactly like a Variegated Snowberry that I received from you in 1871; it never showed the least tendency to climb till this season; it is identical with his in every particular given; the leaf is round not oblong, like Lonicera reticulata; fragrantissima is unknown to me. Eight years ago I sent you five dollars, and received a fine package of shrubs. Have now a purple-leaved Beech, a fine Magnolia, a Lonicera, and the above named Snow-berry".
