from The Florist and Fruitist, November 1856, p.329:
"Roses, Old and New."
Among the new creations, the Perpetual Moss Roses are, I think, most interesting. Only a week or two since I gathered some fine bunches of buds and half open flowers of Salet, a most vigorous growing Rose, and also of Madame Ory; they had the true fragrance of the old Moss Rose, and carried one back to June, thus giving us four Moss-Rose-months instead of barely one. This summer fragrance is so exhilarating, it reminds us so vividly of charming June days in the fickle and often gloomy month of October, that every Rose lover should cultivate a few Perpetual Moss Roses.

It's nice that Rivers can still sell roses in the afterlife.

Very fresh blooms have a strong golden yellow flush at the petal base.

I asked Ralph Moore why he never used this one. He said he never cared for it.

Curious. It is the healthiest and all-around best OGR here.

It surprised me too. Later in life he did use "Gabrielle Noyelle'. Go figure.

Gabriel looks like a nice rose. I guess the yellow blush I noticed helped be unpink. Also good to know it passes down repeat.

I am going to put Salet pollen on Oakington Ruby, the seedlings will be crap- but if the China is homozygous for carotene decomposing enzymes, maybe a few of the f1 and f2 will have yellow. It would be interesting.

I live in zone 6, ten miles north of Boston on the ocean (in a small city). I have grown Salet in a shaded area for four years now and have never seen any winter dieback - no damage to the canes at all, not even at the very tips. I strongly suspect this rose is hardy north of zone 6, probably by more than one zone.
