STATE HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY.
PROCEEDINGS, ESSAYS, AND REPORTS
ANNUAL WINTER MEETING,
HELD AT MADISON, FEBRUARY 2, 3, AND 4, 1875.
J. M. SMITH,
1st District-H. M. THOMPSON,
J. C. PLUMB,
The attendance at the annual meeting of the Society, with the record of which this volume is mainly occupied, was somewhat affected by severe storms. This, however, detracted little from the value of the proceedings. Many of the papers read will be found of great practical value to all horticulturists in the State. While keeping most prominent the Fruit-Growing interest, it will be noticed that more than the usual attention has been given to Flower and Plant culture.
This volume has not been issued as promptly as would have been desirable. For this delay the writer is to blame. Not only is no blame to be attached to the present Recording Secretary, but it is due him to say that he has voluntarily done all in his power to aid in preparing the work for the press, although, by custom, this duty belonged to the writer. The State Printer has also promptly done his work when furnished" copy.” In thus assuming the responsibility and blame for an annoying delay, it is only hoped that it will be believed that this delay was not caused by willful neglect nor lack of interest in the Society and its work.
The Society is under obligation to Secretary Case for revising a number of valuable papers, in addition to those read at the meeting, for insertion in this volume. Free use has also been made in preparing the abstract of the discussion at the annual meeting of an excellent report made by him for the State Journal.
