A correspondent, "C. H. M.," calls attention to the fact that an Essay promised to be prepared by Thomas Meehan, at page 6 of the recently published proceedings of the American Pomological Society, cannot be found by him in the work.

It is but justice to Mr. Meehan to say that he did not promise to prepare an essay for the meeting. He was asked to do so, but declined, as he always has to do, on account of too much pen work already. He did say, that if present, he would give a few verbal remarks, if such would prove acceptable. The putting him down for a prepared paper was no doubt a mere oversight. He was not able to be present, and so not even the verbal remarks could be made.
