LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL.
U. S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE,
BUREAU OF PLANT INDUSTRY,
OFFICE OF THE CHIEF,
Washington, D. C., March 5, 1907.
SIR: I have.the honor to transmit herewith a paper entitled " The
Advantage of Planting Heavy Cotton Seed," prepared by Dr. H. J.
Webber, Physiologist in Charge of the Plant Breeding Investigations
of this Bureau, and Mr. E. B. Boykin, a special agent of the same
office. This paper embodies the results of experiments in the separa-
tion of cotton seed, and shows the advantage to growers of making
such a separation of their seed for planting. The methods presented
and the apparatus described are new and are of great importance
to the cotton industry. The paper should, therefore, be distributed
broadcast among cotton planters, and I recommend its publication
as a Farmers' Bulletin.
Very respectfully, B. T. GALLOWAY,
Chief of Bureau.
Hon. JAMES WILSON,
Secretary of Agriculture.
