My beloved teacher, Dr. Pammel:--
I made no effort to keep the tears of joy out of my eyes, when I saw your fine picture, and read the beautiful tribute to your great work in the Aug. Alumnus.
Hundreds of students, north, south, east and west who have had the rare privilege of coming in touch with you in whatever capacity it happened to be will rise up and call you blessed for such contact.
Dr. Pammel is it possible for the sex characters in trees to become facultative? Or in other words have the power of changing from one sex to another?
There are three cedar trees in my yard, one has always been pistilate, and the other two bore only stamenate flowers until this year when one of these is loaded with berries, and the other one has two berries on it.
They are very old trees and are in close proximity to each other.
Much love to Mrs. Pammel,
Very sincerely and greatfully,
Geo. W. Carver.
