A correspondent says: "I think Mr. Falconer has been fortunate in escaping the unpleasant experiences that have fallen to the lot of most of his fellow gardeners".

He thinks on the whole that "Fairsquare's" paper has been misunderstood. There is no doubt many good gardeners are not appreciated,; - as well as many gardeners who do not appreciate a good place. There is no reason why we should not do what we can to let the community elevate a good gardener in the eyes of those who employ him, - as well as to urge gardeners to make themselves fit for the best places. - Ed.
