18 HAWLEY-My trees planted in 1847; they grow well. This variety has not proved an early bearer nor to this time has it proved productive. Quality "1 beet." Newtown Pippmn. HAwLEY-Havs six trees planted in 1848; have borne but lit- tle until the present season, when three trees bore large crops of fine fair fruit. Roibury RussetL HAWLEY-In its habit of bearing resembles R. I. Greening; fruit double the size of the beft specimens I have seen from the East. May be kept about as long as English Golden Russett. Quality " very good ;" tree a moderate grower. FALL AND EARLY WINTER VARIETIES. Rambo. CONGAR-One of the best bearers; my trees are root-grafted; soil sandy and dry; from a tree 9 years planted, had three and a half bushels of fruit. SLocum-My best specimens are from root-grafted trees. STARIN-My trees are root-grafted; they are hardy, healthy, and bear well. A. KiNNEY-My trees are root-grafted and are planted in a clavey loam; have lost some trees by the severity of the winter. BRAVToN-Set out some root-grafted trees 9 years ago, lost two of the lot; from the others have not had more than a dozen speci- mens; from one graft inserted at the same time in a strong stock, have taken more than two barrels of fruit; do not think it desir- able when root-grafted. In season from October to February, when not picked until October. U S / I S I !
