British Museum (Nat. Hist.) [Natural History]
-Bridges, Thomas. In London's Gardeners' Magazine, 16, 115 (1840) a writer advises a correspondent against turning Botanical Collector and cites the case of "poor Drummond" who though his plants were eagerly bought up did not make enough to realize his wish of buying a few acres to settle down with his family. Douglas barely got a living and often sacrificed his health in search of plants and was often in most distressing circumstances.
Bridges had other sources of income than the plants, animals, etc. sent over to Engl. [England].
-Collie and Lay, former surgeon, the latter naturalist under Beechey. Cf. Britten's Bibliog. Index. Layia.
