Mr. W. A. Bock, North Cambridge, Mass., writes: "Noticing in your March number an article from. Messrs. Nanz & Neuner, of Louisville,. Ky., in which they state that they believe some Eastern florists sent out last spring the Peerless or Edwardsii Carnation instead of Peter Henderson, I would state that I know it to be a fact that certain florists in New York swindled some of my neighbors in this manner. I received my stock from Messrs. Nanz & Neuner, and although they were in pretty feeble condition (being old plants), I have been able to raise a large stock of them. I think it a very valuable acquisition to the white flowering Carnations".
