Abstract

I send herewith a report on the Tertiary Faunae of the United States as represented by collections made in various Territories and States west of the Mississippi River, embraced within the boundaries of your survey. The explorations from which the collections have been derived cover portions of the States and Territories included between British America on the north, the western boundaries of Minnesota and Missouri on the east; the northern borders of the Indian Territory and Arizona, and the middle of New Mexico on the south; and the Sierra Nevada on the west. The amount of material which I have procured through these explorations is large, and is but partially represented in the following pages. I trust that you will find the results a useful contribution to the records of your Geological Survey and to the science to which you have devoted your life ; and that you may find in this report some compensation for the arduous official duties which have recently withdrawn you to some degree from your chosen field of research.
