In the last issue of Field & Laboratory (26, 86-139) appeared the first 331 sketches (Abadie to Gilbert) of collectors, explorers, and observers, in a series that will extend through several issues. My fears of omissions were justified: I find that a sketch of Samuel Botsford Buckley (1809-84), a graduate of Wesleyan University in Connecticut, and twice State Geologist of Texas (1866-7 and 1874-5) was unaccountably omitted. This omission is the more notable since for twenty years I have been holding in abeyance the publication of a sketch of Buckley (on whom I have very extensive materials) waiting for a portrait of this naturalist to come into my possession. The series continues.
