prizes at the county and Free State fairs for six years on seed onions raised from Burpee seeds, I raise the prize taken and South port globe onions, they are ready for market before the northern onions come on the market.

Your flower collections are certainly beautiful especity the zenies for this country. I usually buy seeds by the oz, as you send an oz. pospaid for what a single pkt would use here.

They wont let us show where we get our seeds when we exhibit at the fars for that would hurt other seedsmen, but if any one asks of course we can tell.

I would like to tell more about the good use yet from Burpees seeds but space forbids.
