E. Hippard, Youngstown, Ohio, writes: "I have two Mimulus moschatus seedlings. One is identical with tigrinus, flower and foliage; a very strong musky odor and stands the sun very well, much better than the other variety. Plant, compact and neat; color Of flower, yellow, brown spotted. The other, long, slender foliage, with a flower much like Ruellia formosa (color and habit); plant, erect grower; foliage, strong musky. Are they new and of any value to the floral world? If you think them valuable, will send specimens of foliage and flower".
[Possibly of some value. Mr. Mansfield Milton, of your town, could possibly judge by seeing the whole plant. - Ed. G. M].
