Excerpt from Reports of the Committees for 1852: Of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, With the Schedule of Prizes for 1853

The Committee on Gardens now submit their Report. During the year they have visited the greenhouses, graperies, gardens and grounds of all persons who notified the Committee that they wished to be considered as competitors for the prizes offered by the Society; and also made calls at the residences of several gentlemen, who had invited your Committee to visit their gardens, without intending to compete for any prize. Your Committee have been gratified in observing everywhere, while on these excursions, evidence of a continually increasing interest in rural pursuits, and a constantly improving method of cultivation. The prizes offered by the Society have been too recently established, perhaps, to have yet exercised much influence on the objects they were intended to promote; but it is believed their beneficial effects have not, even now, been wholly unfelt.

In making their awards your Committee have been controlled by the Rules established by the Society, and, in some instances, where the requirements were not exactly complied with, or where circumstances in their opinion rendered it advisable, have availed themselves of the discretionary power granted them by these Rules, of allowing a gratuity instead of awarding a prize.

The several Committees of the Society have sometimes, though rarely, awarded prizes to the gardeners of competitors, or other persons exhibiting in their names, instead of to the owner or grower of the article exhibited. This course is, in the opinion of your Committee, liable to objections, and they have therefore felt it incumbent on them in all cases, to make their awards directly to the owners of the gardens, &c., visited, instead of to the persons having them in charge. It is desirable that there should be a uniform rule upon this subject, to which adherence should be expected of all of the Standing Committees of the Society.

On the 25th of March your Committee visited the greenhouse of Mr. Jonathan French of Roxbury, and the graperies of Messrs. Hovey & Co., of Cambridge; a very heavy fall of snow the night previous made the day selected not very propitious to their design, and perhaps prevented, in some degree, the objects examined from being seen under the most favorable aspects.
