Free's account indicates failure with that technique as well... He also tried a vertical cutting of the rootstock that failed to grow for him. "Horizontal cuttings of the rootstock also rotted away. The evidence of these unsuccessful methods of cutting, while perhaps not conclusive, suggest that they be avoided. The operation might have been successes, but the patients died."
I have not found the book as a digital version but there are LOTS of used copies for sale. I found the 1979 edition at the local library.
