Excerpt from Proceedings of the Annual Convention of the Society of American Florists: Held at Toronto, Ont;, Canada, August 18, 19, 20, and 21, 1891

I assure you that we are delighted to have you among us. This is, probably, the first visit to Canada for some of the ladies and gentlemen now here, and I hope they will carry away with them pleasant reminiscences of the Dominion and its inhabitants.

I regret to confess my inability to convey to you any specific information about the profession in which you are engaged, or about the progress of horticulture in Canada, but I am buttressed on the platform by the gentleman (Mr. Alderman Score) who is the chairman of the Gardens and Parks Committee, and who takes a deep interest in horticulture, and by a member of our committee, whose name may be familiar to some of you, I refer to Mr. Alderman Hallam, whom we look upon as the greatest living horticulturist. I remember that, two years ago, in London, Eng., I met my friend Hallam, and he took me on a trip to the Kew Gardens; and I do not think, ladies and gentlemen, that I exaggerate when I say that he named to me some twelve or fifteen thousand different plants and trees that were growing there. [Merriment and applause.] We have also with us another member of our Council, Mr. Alderman Leslie, whose father is, I think, the pioneer nurseryman of the Province of Ontario. We esteem and honor these gentlemen, our fellow-citizens appreciate their efforts, and have elected them to occupy positions in our Council. I am sure, ladies and gentlemen, it would be more profitable to you to listen to these gentlemen, who know something about your business, than it would be to listen to me. I will not take up your time, as the members of our committee feel desirous of saying a few words to you, but I should feel disappointed if in any way wanting on my own part in assuring you that you are right royally welcome to Toronto. I join with the Chairman in expressing the hope that your visit may be an agreeable and a profitable one, and that the objects of your Society may be promoted by it. Again I welcome you to Toronto, and trust that your stay will be pleasant and profitable to you all.

Mr. Alderman E.K. Score, chairman of the Gardens and Parks Committee of the City Council, was then introduced. He said that the allusion to himself which the Mayor had seen fit to make had rather amused him, in view of the fact that he was an ardent in horticulture, though he was an ardent admirer of it.
