Excerpt from The Lure of the Land

As "the proof of the pudding is in the eating," and as practical demonstration is vastly superior to written statements, the President determined to establish Experimental Stations at various points on the Island and give to the public the results of the work; the object being to prove that the undeveloped territory of Long Island, for years designated as "Scrub Oak Waste" or "Pine Barrens" was maligned, and would, when given the opportunity, produce good crops of high quality.

The work of this development was given into Mr. Fullerton's hands, and I, being favored beyond most women, have been his "full partner" in the intensely interesting and valuable work.

It has included the daily records of not only ordinary farm operations, but details of victory or defeat in the fight with injurious insects and diseases, the quantity of crops gathered, their packing and shipping; the growing of all valuable vegetables native to the temperate zone, as well as many from China, Japan and the Southern States, never before grown in this latitude; the receiving and entertaining of many distinguished "Foreign" guests as well as the Island neighbors and workers, investigators and experts in the tilling of the soil.

It includes a daily weather report, made with tested Government thermometers and rain gauge, and conducted under Government regulations; together with the photographic record of every step of the work.

These records have at all times been open to the public and have been inspected by eminent agriculturists in both National and State employ, editors of many agricultural periodicals, besides laymen in various callings.
