Sept 3'

Went to see Devonian, up from saddle at x, Lowest beds above saddle contain corals. Collected for about 100' above saddle where clionetes macrostriatus was common. Above this Sp. pinonensis came in and we collected through the light and colored platy limestones with red and yellow tints. In the upper part of this unit Schizophoria and Gypsidula are common. 
Above the Schizophoria beds the rock changes to a drab dark gray with scarcely any fossils. Above this interval occurs several beds of dolomite, one of which had Warrenella. We collected only from the lower platy ls. but not from the Oriskany equivalent. Probably mostly pinonensis zone

Transcription Notes:
[[Wasseaella?]] It's Warrenella.
