Excerpt from Sessional Papers, Vol. 6: Part III., Third Session of the Second Parliament of the Province of Ontario; Session 1874
The. Following Report contains descriptions, for the most part accompanied by figures. Of the fossils which I collected during the year 1873, in the Devonian rocks of Western Canada, by the help of a grant set apart for this purpose by the Government of Ontario. In some few cases, for the sake of completeness, I have also included descriptions of remains which I have collected upon other occasions from the same deposits, but which did not come under my notice during the investigation of which this is a special record.
The collections herein described were mainly made from the inferior portion of the Devonian series (oriskany Sandstone and Corniferous Limestone) but the Hamilton group was likewise, though less carefully, examined.
