" T. W.," Newark, Wayne Co., N. Y., writes : "Enclosed I send you specimen of Geranium Robertianum with pure white flowers. There are a few plants growing on the edge of a moss having the normal color, on Islay Island, in Sodus Bay, Lake Ontario. I have never heard of it, and is the first discovered in this section".
[We expect to find white flowering individuals once in a while among all colored flowers; in some families more frequently than others. In the case of this geranium we have never known of a white form being found before. Like most albinos among plants, it seems to be more delicate than the normal form. - Ed. G. M].
