In consequence of the desire you expressed to me that I should give you a few notes relative to the Geographical distribution of mosses, I take the liberty to hand you the enclosed sketch. The order I follow is the same I adopt in a Dispositio Muscorum I lately transmitted to the  Walker-Arnott trug seine Nouvelle Disposition méthodique des espèces de mousses am 18. März 1825 in der Société d’Histoire naturelle de Paris vor (vgl. Walker-Arnott 1825). Walker-Arnott war korrespondierendes Mitglied der Gesellschaft.

Natural History Society of Paris.
Should much be omitted I hope you will excuse me, as the greater part is done from memory, being very far distant from my own herbarium, and there not being any extensive one in Paris so arranged that I could at one view perceive the different localities for the same species. I have farther to beg of you to excuse my not copying it over again for you, as my time is short in Paris, and as I have much yet to do.

Believe me Sir your Sincer e & very Humble Servant G. Walker Arnott

Paris, 15 March 1825}
