Excerpt from The Journal of Horticulture, Cottage Gardener, and Country Gentleman, 1864, Vol. 7: A Magazine of Gardening, Rural and Domestic Economy, Botany and Natural History
A third reason is, that even in controversy a spirit of kindness and courtesy has been maintained. ... All seem to have been animated by the just conviction that an opponent has as much right to entertain an opinion as he has whom he opposes, and that he need not have his face scratched to make him feel that he is wrong.
May these characteristics which have earned for this Journal approbation and success in 1864 be maintained and intensified in 1865; and when this year's days are concluded, and our first Number of its successor appears, may it bear as its introduction an address as kindly-spirited and truthful from the same friendly heart.
