Gardener's Letters

Mr R.T.C. Scott, Johnshaven writes:-
I am taking the liberty of enclosing herewith a "cabbage leaf" which I found growing among some other cabbages a few days ago. As you will see, it is completely round, and, therefore I think it might be taken some notice of. I have shown it to several people, including some other gardeners, and none of them seems to have ever observed a similar one. I shall be glad if you think this worthy of notice in your paper, which is so largely read by people of a horticultural and agricultural pursuits.
