A conversation about apples:
Emily: The sweet peas are unchanged. Cattle-show is tomorrow. The coops and committees are passing now...They are picking the Baldwin apples.
Vincent: For such a child, that distant time
Was close as apple-trees to climb,
And apples crashed among the trees
Half Baldwin, half Hesperides
Annie: While Baldwins have been used for cider for more than two hundred years, and have received good marks in the past, several experiments have shown the juice to be flat and insipid.
