Mr. T. V. Munson, Denison, Texas, writes: "On page 83, March number Gardener's Monthly, you insert my letter of November 10th under 'A Fine Peach.' I should have written further facts, obtained since, in regard to the variety. After careful inquiry, by letter and otherwise, I have been enabled to trace its first introduction several years ago by G. W. Stoner, of Shrevesport, La., but its origin was not known to him. It is known as Calloway Cling, and possibly some of your readers in the regions where the variety is best known can give its origin. It is remarkable for its lateness, size and quality".
