Excerpt from Meehans' Monthly, Vol. 4: A Magazine of Horticulture, Botany and Kindred Subjects

Whether Love should be classed as a selfish or unselfish affection has long been a subject for debate. There may be instances in support of both views, even in gardening. To set out a fruit tree, or to plant a vegetable seed, would be adduced in favor of the former view; while the admirer of flowers, or the lover of nature might be considered as on the border land. Shelley tells us there was

"A Lady

She sprinkled bright water from the Stream
On those that were faint with the sunny beam;
And out of the cups of the heavy flowers
She emptied the rain of the thunder showers.

She lifted the heads with her tender hands,
And sustained them with rods and osier bands;
If the flowers had been her own infants, she
Could never have loved them more tenderly."

No return was expected from the flowers she loved.

Yet from ancient times to labor for nothing was an unpleasant experience. "Operam et olume perdidi" - to lose the oil as well as the work - was indeed to have but ones labor for his pains.

The conductors of Meehan's Monthly can say, however, that they present this new volume to the reader with great pleasure. Though conscious that the lamp cannot be made to burn without oil, and that the ancient was justified in deploring the loss of his "oleum;" they can truly say that, aside from this practical view, the preparation of the volume has been "A labor of love."
