There were many other exhibitors, but the names of exhibitors and the kinds and varieties of friTits exhibited, already mentioned, will suffice to show us what fruits were grown in the several localities and by whom they were raised. Many excellent varieties of fruit have been added to our list since that day. In addition to the names of exhibitors already given, there were at subsequent exhibitions in other years, several persons who exhibited large collections of apples, pears, peaches, plums and grapes. Among them I may mention E. I). Lay of Ypsilanti; O. M. Bronson, Waterford; B. G. Stimson. Detroit; Wm. B. Wesson, Detroit; A. Whitehead, Pontiac. Judge Barkery, . Plymouth, made collections from the orchards in that town and entered them for exhibition in the names of the proprietors of the orchards. He took -great interest in the welfare of the society, and was generally present at the exhibitions, bringing large collections of fruits from Plymouth gardens and orchards.
