Very challenging species list, especially since he used abbreviations for some of the genus names, many of the names are no longer the same in modern molluscan taxonomy, and he had some misspellings (ex. "lacrymosus" is actually spelled lachrymosus). The last line "sent shells and wrote" is in a different handwriting (Robert Kennicott’s?), as are the numbers after the species names.
