By Charles W. Garfield, Secretary.
This is a magnificent work of 619 pages. To say the least, few State reports come to our table equal to this in value. A good idea is the "Secretary's Portfolio." In this are given selections from various sources of ideas that may have an influence on the horticulture of Michigan, and which form admirable texts for discussion at future meetings. A chapter of inestimable value is a list with location of the flora of Michigan, by E. F. Smith, of Hubbardston. Michigan must be a grand State for the botanist as well as the horticulturist. No less than 1559 species of flowering plants are enumerated in this list.
