Bentham. ---------- "Long Valley" -- There is a Long Valley in Plumas Co where Bolander collected teste Gray. Proc. Am. Acad. 7; 330. Maybe Bolander was not in Long Valley, Mendocino, as I have thought. ::::::::: Nov. 20, 1905  = Acer Californicum is of Dietr. not Greene as latter implies in Fl. Fr. - Botta, P.E. -- First collected the California Road Runner; gives a descrip. of it in Ann. Mus. Hist. Nat., 1835, vol. 4. p. 125. Says it exists from Cape St. Lucas to Port of St. Francisco and that the Spanish colonists call it Churea [?]. There is a large and beautiful, colored, double plate of the bird. - Dr. Henry. The plant referred to in Erythea, 6; 123 is Actinotinus sinensis Oliver. Poor Oliver was overwhelmed with confusion when the truth came out says Dr. Henry. It happened just before Henry was leaving China and it was packed without his examining it.
