THE BOTANICAL JOURNAL OF G. W. CLINTON – December 1866

 [1866.]    Dec. 3. 6 P.M. left Buffalo & reached Syracuse at 12* or thereabouts & went to bed. 

 

[1866.]    Dec. 4. Took 8 A.M. train of Syracuse & Binghamton R. R. to Jamesville, 7 miles, walked back a mile or so on the track, & struck into the valley of the affluent of the Butternut Creek, in which Lewis Foote found the Scolopendrium in March last. Searched diligently, found it nowhere but at the very head of the ravine, where it is about entering the cleared lands.  Collected some of it. Walked into Syracuse and left in the 2&10' train for Buffalo. 

 

[1866.]    Dec. 26. Have been at work, off & on, ever since my return from New York, on the Herbarium. Mr. Joseph Stocking Lewis, of Batavia, has helped me a good deal. I worked all Christmas day, and now, 10 A.M. have selected specimens of the Ranunculaceae, and of all the Cyperaceae except Carex, & poisoned them, so that they are ready to be set up on their papers, and the duplicates are bundled up, & the bundles are labelled, & in, or ready to go into the duplicate case.

 

A few days since, Mr. Curtis B. Willey, Principal of the School at Niagara City (Suspension Bridge) called on me with some plants he wished named, I had met him frequently, on Saturdays, at the Whirlpool.
