[131] pride. My wife, being a botanist, by extensively corresponding and exchanging with other rose-lovers in Florida, California, and even Europe, contrived to restore and keep up the reputation of the place for roses, so that we had at one time 700 or 800 bushes in bloom. The roses there are fragile and cannot be shipped, but are beautiful in texture, form and color, and all fragrant, quite in contrast to the California roses. Some of the rare roses we brought from California, which were without fragrance in California, later assumed that quality in Rosehart.

Mr. Payne retained his friendship for Mr. Davis, who died in his New Orleans home; but, of course, like all other old Southerners, would have made great sacrifices for the old flag long before he died.
