Seedling No. 75. It was reported that all of this was lost, however, Mr. Harry W. Claybaugh of Franklin, Pennsylvania, writes us that he has a plant of it under the name Morning Gleam sent him by Dr. Neeley in 1926. Dr. Neeley changed the name to Fortune’s Gift in either 1928 or 1929 as it was so listed by him in a letter to me and he also reported it to Prof. Saunders in 1933 under the name Fortune’s Gift. His garden notebook also has the name Morning Gleam erased and Fortune’s Gift substituted.
