CAROLINE E. STRINGER. A few years ago the Sass's gave us this lovely apple blossom pink—a pink so pale and delicate that it is almost a tinted white. It still stands as one of the really excellent things in fine iris, and at the present very low price no one should be without it. Each 65c; three for $1.50; ten, $4.00 _[Cooley's Wholesale pricelist, 1932]
