The change you have made in the selection of the Vines is a great improvement on what they were previously. Regarding your list for the early house we think it right to observe, that our experience of the Muscat Hamburg does not warrant its general recommendation; it evidently is a shy Grape, and requires peculiar soil. Black Prince is an easily grown, showy, but only third-rate Grape. The others are all good. On the list for late vinery we remark that Foster's White Seedling is not a very good keeper. Don't strike out West's St Peter's; it is a good old Grape, and comes in before Lady Downes and after the Black Hamburg. Our experience of Trebbiano does not induce us to recommend it. Muscat of Alexandria is far before it in quality, and keeps as well.
