I returned to Murphy’s, rejoined Professor Whitney, and examined the immediate vicinity. Murphy’s is a pretty and thriving little mining village, with sluices and ditches on every side—everything telling of the only interest there.

Specimens collected: Sequoiadendron giganteum; Corallorhiza striata var. vreelandii; Rubus parviflorus.
