A.G.,Cambridge, Mass., asks:" Are we to understand from the statement on page 356, (Dec. No.) that Messrs. Ellwanger & Barry have four plants under the two names of Ampelopsis Veitchii and A. tri-cuspidata. It is so stated, but I am not quite sure that this is meant".

[A. G., will accept our thanks for the grammatical correction, - though if we were to imitate his style and be "not quite sure" of his meaning, we might say that we think there were really more than four plants under these two names. - Ed. G. M].
