Dear Professor Rolfs:

I am very much pleased indeed to receive your letter of
September 12 and to learn that the "Break to fDay" tomato seed arrived.
There is another variety that has been developed by the Department
that will be available this coming year. It is called "Pritchard"
in honor of Dr. Pritchard who developed it and who died last year.
We will send you a packet when it is available. It is both early
and disease-resistant.

You guessed right as to amateur stamp collectors desiring
foreign stamps. I have quite a clientele, particularly among small
boys, and some not so small. Those you sent and any foreign stamps
are most welcome. The former Secretary also used to make heavy in-
road's on our supply. I have never seen any of this issue that you
sent. My stock ought to go up in several quarters.

With best wishes to you and your family,

Very sincerely,

Dear Professor Rolfs:

The University of California is very anxious to make somne
comparative tests between the Lima bean strains as grown in tropical
countries and those grown along the cool coastal region of California,
and has asked us to assist in getting two-po-und samples of any strains
that can be obtained from several of the tropical regions. I am wonder-
ing whether this bean is grown in your section of Brazil, and if so, if
it would be possible for you to send us samples of this size. We shall
appreciate very much any help you can give us in this connection.

I am sorry that Dr. Fairchild, Mr. Dorsett, and Mr. Armour
did not get down into your part of South America. They went through the
West Indies and did touch at Georgetown. I wish I could have been with
them. They visited the small islands and the out-of-the-way parts of the
West Indies, something I have long wished to do, and hope to do some day.

With best wishes from all of us here,

Very sincerely,

Dear Professor Rolfs:

I have received the copies of your bulletins on the Sapucainha,
Propagation of Citrus in Brazil, and on the Public School, publish-
ed by you and your dauc'itar. I am greatly indebted to you for these
and appreciate very much your sending them along. We get requests here
for publications dealing with fruit and vegetable growing in Latin
America, and are very glad to see these publications begin to come out
of the countries themselves, as they give a much better source of in-
formation than an-thing we can furnish from here. You are leading the
way, and I hope that many other Latin American countries will follow.

Mr. P. H. Rolfs,
Escola Superior de Agricultura e
Veterinaria,
Vicosa, Minas Geraes,
Brazil.

Dear Mr. Rolfs:

I have received your letter of February 16. Mr. Young's letter
acknowledging the arrival of the Sapucainha seed crossed with yours. We
are hoping to get good germination and be able to grow some of the plants
here.
In regard to the rice request, we are putting out a "drag net"
to all our correspondents in South America, hoping that somewhere along
the line there will be some one who might help us out on it. We have very
few satisfactory correspondents in South America. You are, of course, our
most satisfactory one, so you are likely to get all manner of strange re-
quests that might apply from the Panama Canal down to the Straits of Magellan!
We get such far-reaching requests here that we are apt to do likewise. I don't
know any one in the Amazon country at all, and our contacts with Brazilian
officials have not been very satisfactory.

Your hopes about Congress being generous with us were realized, but
in the wrong direction. They were exceedingly generous with cuts. We have
already been cut over $52,000, and hope this is the end. The last cut was
made on the floor of the Senate last week. If there are any further slashes
in the Bill when it comes out of Congress it will mean that we will have to
let a number of people in this Division go, and a number of other Divisions
of the Bureau, as well as in other Bureaus, will have to do the same thing.
This is a political year, and each party is trying to get the other one in a
hole. I must say there has been some very good non-partisan work on reconstruc-
tion measures on the Hill,but the closer it gets to Convention time the less
interested they are in unselfish measures. It is rather an anomalous situation
having to ask for a five billion bond issue to create new work, and turn around
and drastically cut scientific work with the result that many Government employes
will have to be added to the ranks of the -unemployed. There is nothing that
can be done about it we will have to grin and "take it on the chin", protect
our own people as much as we can and hope the depression will lift before more
drastic measures are taken.

We will have no foreign expeditions next year the money for that
purpose was all taken out on the first cut we had. Dr. Fairchild and Mr.
Dorsett are out with Mr. Armour in the West Indies. They expect to be back







/ -2-



at Miami by the last week of this month. We have two men in Chile who
will be going up to Peru the end of this month, working on wild potatoes
for disease-resistant material. They will be back by July first. I hope
the next time I write Iwill have a little more optimistic slant on things.

With best wishes,
Very sincerely,

Dear Professor Rolfs:

Our rice investigators ask that if possible we secure
a little seed of the perennial rice from the Amazon. I under-
stand that this is an Oryza species that may have value for forage
for the southern States. In any case, they are interested in obtain-
ing it for their breeding work, and I am wondering if it would be
possible for you to secure some of it for us.

We are having very warm weather here the warmest winter
that Washington has experienced. We are still very short of rain.
It seems more like Florida or southern California and has our plants
all upset. The depression still holds. The Appropriation Bill for
the Department which passed the House the day before yesterday not
only carries drastic cuts, but prevents the filling of any vacancies
that occur, also any promotions. We will just have to "sit tight"
and wait for better times.

Dear Dr. Rolfs:

I was pleased to get your letter of December 29 and to learn that
you liked my article on carpotroche oil.

Under separate cover I am sending about 70 more reprints. There
may be some delay in their arrival because due to regulations here they
have to go to the 'Smithsonian Institution where they may have to wait
until a bag of mail for Brazil has accumulated. However I do not expect
them to be unduly delayekd-this happens only occasionally.

I had originally 175 reprints but I have sent copies to the United
States Public Health Service (they requested 5 copies), the Leper Stations
Q at Hawaii and Louisiana, the pharmaceutical firms, doctors, and others
who would be interested in this oil.

Mr. Young of the Office of Foreign Plant Introduction told me
the carpotroclB seeds you sent had arrived and were immediately planted
in Chapman Field near Miami, Florida. He also mentioned that Mr. Higgins
... had received his seeds.

I was much interested in what you wrote concerning some of your
.Y seedlings and budded trees.

S- f I am astounded that the rascals who collect carpotroche seeds in
x the wilds cut down the trees and are so short sighted that they fail to
see the future of their own business interests. Incidentally, I never
\heard before that such a practice was common among the pecan hunters in
, Mississippi.

I shall look forward with pleasure to getting a reprint of your
recent article on the propagation of sapucainha and trust that you will
send a couple to Mr. Young. Undoubtedly Mr. Higgins would also appreci-
qiate getting a copy._

Thank you for your season's greetings, which arrived the day before
Christmas.

Dear Professor Rolfs:

On my return from the Pacific Coast I find your letter
of August 5, together with the photograph of Magnolia am&lla,
which I find of munch interest. It is an excellent phot6graph
showing the habit of growth of this tree, and I very much ap-
preciate your sending it on.

In regard to forwarding plants in the future, we shall
be glad to follow your suggestions as to sending by registered mail.
I am very sorry indeed that you have been inconvenienced by customs
charges and that sort of thing on live plants. I had no idea that
plants, particularly those destined for a school, would be dutiable.

I don't know whether you have learned or not that we have
lost two men from our staff with whom you are acquainted, within the
past few weeks,. Edward Simmonds, Superintendent at Chapman Field,
and Bdward Goucher, propagator at Bell Station, both passed away
while I was in the West. Dr. R. A. Oakley also passed on while I
was out there. I had a visit with him Just a very short time before
the end came. This afternoon we are attending the funeral of Mrs.
Corbett, wife of Prof. L. C. Corbett. Death has certainly laid a
heavy hand here-this summer. Dr. Taylor's other sister also passed
on he has lost both this year.

Conditions in California were exceedingly dry. Forest
fires were everywhere, as they were throughout the West. The water
problem is very acute. I spent a good deal of my time going into
the range problem and the related erosion situation, as the role of
plant introduction in this field is coming to the fore and we are
getting a great many requests for assistance in this direction.

I also went into the avocado situation pretty thoroughly,
as the marketing organizations desire that we aid them through the
introduction of a variety that will fit into this season of the year.
There is a gap between the first of August and the first of November,
and we hope to undertake work in Mexico to assist them some time later.
The present prospects for increases in Federal funds of any sort are

nil, and there will undoubtedly be heavy cuts as the depression in-
creases in intensity the country over. The East had plenty of rain
this summer and it is refreshing to see green grass and green trees
after my Western trip, where drought played such havoc.

Thank you very much for sending us the Magnolia seed which
has been received. We are very glad indeed to have this material. We
are also glad to have your notes about the yellow Magnolia and refer-
ence to its blooming at Miami. We will distribute this seed among our
four stations and try to get it established here in the South as well
as on the Pacific coast. We will be pleased to have the photographs
as well. It ought to be a decided addition to our plants. I am grate-

We will be prepared for the requests for anti-lepric plants
following your address. We get quite a good many of them from time to
time; there seems to be a little increase generally in this group of
plants once more.

Doctor Fairchild and Doctor Galloway are both here at the
present time. Dorsett returned last month. Mr. Morrison is still in
Europe but will return the latter part of July. We are hoping to have

Dear Prof, Rolfs:

I take pleasure in stating that at the request of Dr. Fairchild

we are seeding to you by parcel post two small plants of a hybrid

actinidia, described in the enclosed literature. WVe shall hope to

learn later of the behavior of these plants with you.

Very truly yours,

F.P.I. 92303. ACTINIDIA CHINENSIS X ARGUTA

(Described in the Journal of Heredity,-Vol. XVIII,No. 2, Feb. 1927).


This hybrid, between widely different. species, was made by Dr,
David Fairchild with the idea .that some of the second generation might
prove to have the hardiness of the staminate parent and the large fruited
character of the pistillate parent.

No fruits have yet been produced by this hybrid. The plants now
being sent out are grown from cuttings of the original plant.

The fruit of the pistillate parent (Actinidia chinensis) is large.
hairy and mildly acid, and. 1i-ihe hybrid it is hoped that the large size
will be retained. The staminate parent (A. arguta) fruits.as far north
as Canada and it had been hoped that its hardiness would be imparted
in some degree to the hybrid. It seems doubtful at present, however,
that the latter is any more cold resistant than the Chinese-pistillate
parent,- which is scarcely hardy at Washington,. D.C. 0

The foliage of this first generation hybrid is intermediate
between the tyro parents but no.increase in vigor,, as is so often the
case in hybrid plants, is apparent...

it is hoped that persons receiving these plants will give them-
unusual care an- in-dase they. fruit report the fact to the Division of
Foreign Plant Introduction so that arrangements can be made for
photographing them anid securing seeds for .planting to test the behavior.
in the second generation.

As a vine for large'trellises, this hybrid actinidia should
succeed well, :since its parents are both attractive pergola vines.
Grow the plants in. a .iieh well-drained- loam and give plenrity.of.
water, *' .

FOREIGN PLANr INTRODUCTION April 27, 1931.



Professor P. H. Rolfs,
Escola Superior de Agricultura e Veterinaria,
Vicosa, Minas Geraes,
Brazil.

Dear Professor Rolfs:

Your letter of March 28, addressed to Mr. Morrison, contain-
ing information concerning the chaulmrnoogra seedlings, has been received
and read with a great deal of interest. We are very much pleased to
have this information regarding the success of this introduction in Brazil,
and thank you for much for it as well as for the photographs to go with
it. In case we should use any of the latter, we shall be only too glad
to credit the source in the furtherance of your work down there. It al-
ways helps. All too seldom do we get good information about many of our
introductions, and such reports as this give us very valuable data showing
the progress of our work.

Mr. Morrison is in Europe at present, working primarily with
the various Botanic Gardens, Arboreta, and the important nursery firms
and specialists in the various lines of ornamental plants. He will be
back in late summer or early fall. He is having a very enjoyable time.
It is possible that I may get out to Hawaii this summer, but I am not at
all sure at this early date. Dorsett gets back this week Morse preceded
him by a month or two. Our men are back from Mexico, so that Morrison is
the only one we have outside of the country at the present time. It is
possible that we may do some work in Peru on wild potato work later in the
year. This at the present time is uncertain.

With heartiest good wishes from us all,

Very sincerely,



Knowles A. Ryerson,
Principal Horticulturist in Charge.

Dear Mr. Rolfs:

Your letter of Jan. 15, together with the papaya seed, was

received during my absence and has already been acknowledged by Mr.

Morrison. I an very much pleased to get this. There is still consid-

erable interest in the papaya in Florida though the boom rather flatten-

ed out as far as the fruit was concerned. Perhaps they will develop it on

a sane basis instead of the wild methods taken. California is growing

considerable of it. I never believed they could grow it there, but they

may find a few warm pockets where it can be done. We are going to get

some to try out there as well.

With best wishes, I an
