"J. H.", Stan wood, Iowa, writes: "I send you a sample of a new Label designed to be used on all nursery stock. The name is to be written on the outside, and inside it is also to be written, to keep a record of the name in case the outside should be washed out by the rain or weather. They are not very smoothly made yet, but you can see what they are meant for. Please attach them to a tree, and you will see how they will do. I have some that I have used for a year, and the writing inside is as good as when put on, but the outside is gone".
