[1864.]    Dec. 24. Received, by Express, from Dr. Dewey, a small, but very precious, packet of Carices. From Bebb, a letter acknowledging receipt of my packet of Junci &c. Also letter of acknowledgement from Miss Kinney.

[1864.]    Dec. 30. Received letter of acknowledgement from Prof. Porter. He thinks that my Aster longifolius is Aster ae... (I, probably, sent him Dr. Clarke's A. longifolius from Flint, Mich.) & writes that my Carex debilis is Carex arctata (in which he is right, I had confounded the two.) Prof. Ward of the Rochester University called. He suggests that Charles Wordsworth would, if I personally applied to him, help the Society to casts, as he did the State Collection. As to the State Collection, he complains, & says that he hears others complain. 1st. That the minerals are not cleaned, but are defiled with the dust of years.

2nd. That the fossils are not labelled.
