Excerpt from Transactions of the Maine State Pomological Society: For the Year 1886; Including the Proceedings of the Winter Meeting Held at Music Hall, Farmington, February 3 and 4, 1887 Flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity: children love them; quiet, tender, contented, ordinary people love them as they grow; luxurious and disorderly people rejoice in them gathered. They are the cottager's treasure; and in the crowded town, mark, as with a little broken fragment of rainbow, the windows of the workers in whose heart rests the covenant of peace. - John Ruskin, 1819. Think once more, my friends, of the great blessings which you may confer on mankind by the multiplication of good fruits. Next to saving the soul is the saving of health, and I kw of better means than an abundant supply of ripe fruits. Fruits are the overflow of nature's bounty; gems from the skies which are dropped down to beautify the earth, charm the sight, gratify the taste, and minister to the enjoyment of life; and the more we realize this, the more shall we appreciate the Divine goodness to us, and the duty of providing them for others. - Marshall Pinckney Wilder, 1798-1886.
