Our readers will remember that it was charged by Mr. Thorpe and Mr. Henderson in our columns, that they had good reason for believing that the "Diamond" was nothing but the "Pearl" under a new name. As about that time the introducers thought proper to withdraw it from sale, in order to test it another year, we did not think it necessary to print the articles sent us in full. But as we see the plant again advertised, it is only proper to remind our readers that the original charge has not been cleared away.
