Excerpt from Transactions of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, 1847, Vol. 1 Very far from Wishing to depreciate the labors of other Horticultural bodies, the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, both as a Society, and through their individual members, has always endeavored to stimulate the efforts of all to encourage and extend Horticulture, being sensible that the existence and prosperity of the Society depended entirely on its widest diffusion. But it must be evident on referring to the quality and number of varieties of fruits at the annual exhibitions in Boston for some years past, that there does exist here a vast accumulation of knowledge and experience in the selection, growth and cultivation of these bounties of Providence - and that in this knowledge and experience, the public demand and have a right to expect to share, in return for the patronage bestowed on the Society with so unsparing a hand.
