This pioneering American horticulturist developed more and better varieties of numerous cultivated plants. Trimmed TNS, irregular 5½" X 2" tipped to pristine cream-colored 6" X 3 3/4" autograph album leaf, n.p., n.y. Very good. Though strangely trimmed, most of the content of this brief note is legible, and it reads in part [missing portions hazarded in brackets]: "Athou[gh I receive thous]ands on thousands of letters to answer, [I for]ward to you today the three Royal walnut [tre]es. [I h]ave selected some wonderful ones for [you] and believe they will fulfill your expectation." Large, bold signature. Though place and date aren't indicated, this note was received by noted collector Preston Sawyer (1899-1968, California journalist and historical writer), a fellow resident of Burbank's city of Santa Rosa, California. An interesting example. Bookseller Inventory # 25622
