"The weather report for January would not suit florists of your locality, very much, I am thinking, especially when the fact of a strong wind almost always accompanied the mercury when it got near zero. Parties that figured for "steam" up this way would find that they needed more piping and more power in the boiler, than places where zero weather is the exception".

[We are a trifle better favored at Philadelphia. 4° above zero has been our lowest. From 10° to zero is about as low as we reach in any winter; though once in a while it may drop a little below for an hour or so. We have heard little complaints of heating apparatus of any kind, so far.- Ed. G. M].
