From The Gardeners' Chronicle, October 6, 1888, p.379:
A Plea for Tea and Noisette Roses.
In making a selection of Roses in these days, I would first of all bear in mind that the beginner (and I am not writing for experienced growers) requires Roses that will grow. There are so many vigorous growers now-a-days, of all shades of colour, that a good selection of them will give a grower all that he can desire, even when eliminating some, which, although vigorous, are, from some cause or other, not effective...
For pillar or climbing Roses there are no better Roses than the Noisettes, especially those of the Gloire de Dijon race. "Old Glory” is very fine, but I think some of her progeny even better...
......These are all good Roses for concealing fences, walls of houses, or training as pillar Roses.

From The Floral World and Garden Guide, August 1873, p.230:
"Pot Roses." By an Amateur Rosarian.
The most essential point is to select suitable varieties; and as I have paid, for many years past, a considerable attention to the pot-culture of roses, can strongly recommend the undermentioned as being the very best in the several classes and colours.
