Anonymous. Untitled. Gardeners’ Chronicle and Agricultural Gazette (2 Jan 1864), p.13
(Article printed Jan 2)
This editorial reveals that the anonymous author of the Times article was Matthew. In the intervening period, Matthew and von Liebig had exchanged letters, which are now made public in this editorial (with Matthew’s permission but not Liebig’s). Liebig has derogatory things to say not only about Matthew, but indeed farmers in general.
