Day found Staphylea trifoliata, in a grove, on the plain, back of new stone barn, on the 1st. road to right of McAdam Turnpike, after passing the gate, behind the barn, easterly, a quarry not worked this year, & a little beyond the grove (or coppice?). On head of Squaw Island planted seeds of the Pawpaw, & there, & along inside of the embankment, down to the Lock, scattered seeds of the Hibiscus moscheutos, Silybum marianum, and Nicandra physaloides.
