"S. F." sends an article controverting some statements made in another magazine. The paper is well written, and the criticisms are temperate and seem just, but as probably few of our readers have seen the paper criticised, and we have no room to reprint it in our own, the readers of the Gardener's Monthly will not be able to judge understandingly of the merits of the controversy. For this reason we have done as our correspondent requests, given "the reason, if declined." It is not, as he supposes, "fear of offending the other magazine".
