To refind marked poppy plants: Go north from Boye's Springs station along railroad track. One comes to a whistle mark on left (west) side of track painted black on side towards Boye's Spr. Sta. There is a telegraph pole very near this mark but nearer the station than the whistle mark. The first pole, then, beyond (north) the whistle mark is a finder. Nearly halfway form this pole to the second pole the markings begin and continue north a little way beyond second pole. The plants were marked by wire through the root crown run out to iron spikes driven in ground. Marks on fence, always on top board, correspond to plants as per page 2 note.
