WE HAVE BEEN HONORED with a commission from Luther Burbank, of Santa Rosa, California, and have accepted the work of propagating for, and introducing to the Horticultural Public his grand new plum — Maynard, and appeal to all lovers of good fruits to help us in the introduction and dissemination of this his latest and greatest effort. Mr. Burbank 1 as done more than any other living man in the introduction of new and valuable varieties of fruits and flowers, and he is still working away, and no doubt will bring forth from nature’s store-house many more valuable varieties, that in turn will stimulate coming gener- ations to plant and care for trees and flowers that will increase the world’s wealth and add pleasure and happiness to the homes of millions of people yet unborn.
The Maynard Plum is sent out by Mr. Burbank with the assurance that it surpasses in quality and beauty of fruit any plum heretofore introduced. We bespeak for the Maynard, through the hearty co-operation of fruit-growers everywhere, such a sale as Mr. Burbank* s best efforts so richly deserve and merit. The many testimonials received by Mr. Burbank from eminent authorities throughout the country easily give the Maynard first place amongst the best varieties of plums.
We are introducing the Maynard under a contract that gives to Mr. Burbank a royalty on each tree sold, and all will concede that he has well earned by his long years of toil in the origination of new fruits and flowers all that will come to him in honor and money from the sale of this new plum.
