Abstract

A little peninsula projecting but slightly from the coast of California and forming by its northern front the south shore of the Bay of Monterey has for botany-lovers many attractive features. The little city, named of the Bay, was the first capital of this western commonwealth, long before Sacramento, or San Francisco eve, had a place in the geography of the world. This little town was accordingly the port of entry for all this western coast. To it came traders in slow-sailing ships; to it also came the enthusiastic naturalist still stirred perhaps by the impulse of Linnaeus; Douglas, 1832; Coulter, 1830; Don in 1837 and Hartweg in 1846.
