Transcription Notes:
Transcription Centre has asked that volunpeers transcribe do, ditto and " as [[Ditto for: text]] This will hopefully be added to their instructions when they are finished. Acer = a genus of trees or shrubs commonly known as maple. Ceanothus L. is a genus of about 50–60 species of shrubs or small trees in the family Rhamnaceae. Sometimes Vernon writes Ce so it ends up looking like a capital a. Checked Latin species names, kept Vernon's original spelling and anything I'm not sure of I've left in [[?]]. Some misspellings listed below. Sasfras = Vernon probably means Sassafras Xanithoxylum = Vernon probably means Zanthoxylum Gaulthera = Vernon probably means gaultheria but as I can't work out second word have left both in [[?]] Mitchella ripens = Vernon probably means mitchella repens Robinia pseudocassia = this is definitely what he wrote but he may mean robinia pseudoacacia com. probably stands for "common" and is set off in its own column with a large space before it.
