In Life and Work of Cyrus Guernsey Pringle (1936, University of Vermont, page 17) author Helen Burns Davis cited the following additional titles in a list of contributions to The Cultivator & Country Gentleman:

“9 June 1871. The breeding of plants by means of hybridization, selection, etc.”
NOTE: This date is incorrect for this magazine. Pringle wrote a report for the Vermont Board of Agriculture under this title and presented it on this date (see Collier 1872, p.229), so that may be the correct source of Davis’ citation.

“8 Feb 1872. The Methods and Aims of Fruit-growing in the Champlain Valley”
NOTE: This date is possible for this magazine, but an article with this title was not found anywhere in this issue. Pringle wrote a report for the Vermont Board of Agriculture on this subject (but with a slightly different title) and presented it on this date (see Collier 1872, p.62), so that may be the correct source of Davis’ citation.
