PREFACE TO THE TENTH EDITION.

The primary object in first publishing The Young Gardener’s Assistant, was to enable our respectable seedsmen, while furnishing a catalogue of seed for the use of the Kitchen and Flower Garden, to afford instruction, at a trifling expense, to such of their customers as had not aregular gardener, and thereby save themselves the blame of those who may not have given their seed a fair trial, for want of knowing how to dispose of it in the ground.

On the appearance of the tenth edition of this work, the Author cannot forbear expressing his sense of obligation to his patrons in general, and to his fellow-seedsmen of NewYork in particular, for the interest they have taken in circulating the book, thereby evincing their approbation of this humble attempt to serve both the seedsman and the gardener, by supplying directions for the management of a garden, in a manner calculated to insure success.

Within the last fourteen years, upward of fourteen thousand copies of previous editions have been sold at the seedstore of Mr. G, C. Thorburn, of NewYork. The Boston and Philadelphia seedsmen have also contributed largely to its circulation ; and the Author is gratified in learning that his labours are appreciated by eminent horticulturists, as will appear from the following extracts :

“Dear Sir — You will see by the next month’s ‘New York Farmer,’ if you has^e not already seen by the Albany papers, that several copies of your Young Gardener’s Assistant were given as premiums by the State Agricultural Society. Mr. D. B. Slingerland and myself were on the committee for awarding premiums, and thijught your work was deserving encouragement, and that even in this small way we might be of service in bringing it before the public as WORTHY OF BEING GIVEN AS PREMIUMS.

Yours very respectfully,

Alexander Walsh
Lansingburgh, November, 1835.”
