Page 29 - Caulibus ramosis, ramis geniculatis, patulis, teretibus, intus crenulatis; foliis petiolatis, lanceolatis, glabris; floribus spicatis confertis octandris, distylis, staminis inclusis, stylis exertis elongatis. Raf. — Renouee 1. Rob. p. 366. Large plant, four or five feet high, branches purplish, every one of which bears a fine, thick spike, about three inches long, of rose coloured flowers.

Page 7 - In perusing this Flora, I was astonished to find, among many blunders in nomenclature and classification, several accurate descriptions and valuable additions to the knowledge of plants, their geography, utility, and natural history.

Page 11 - Mexico since Louisiana, lying on the borders of that Empire, must of course possess a botany partly Mexican and consequently highly interesting.' The author lists ten native plants as 'ornamental and worth cultivating in gardens for their sweet scent and the elegance of their forms.
Page 11 - Louisiana gardens, — they do not all 'persist' in Bailey! The author ends the introduction to his book with the wish 'that these hints may induce some Botanists to dig into that rich mine, and I look forward with confidence to the period when the vegetable productions of the southwest corner of the Union will be equally known with those of the opposite quarter'.

Anisata. might properly form a sub-genus (or a new genus) having four fertile stamina, to which the name of Hypogon might be given.
