    Excerpt from Smithsonian Miscellaneous Collections, Vol. 16

    The following pages contain the results of several years' study of one of the most interesting and difficult branches of American Conchology. My ms. Was completed in and I find, upon freshly taking up the subject, that I am inclined to question many of the conclusions at which I had then arrived. A more enlarged acquaintance with fresh-water shells convinces me that a much greater reduction of the number of species than I have attempted must eventually be made; but until the prolific waters of the southern states have been systematically explored and a great collection of Specimens obtained, which shall represent every portion of those streams and include as many transitional forms as can be procured, a definitive monograph of our Melanians cannot be written. I am indebted to several kind friends for assist ance in preparing this work; first of all, to Dr. Isaac Lea, who not only gave me constant access to his noble collection, but on many occasions aided me by comparing specimens and elucidating knotty questions in synonymy. Mr. John G. Anthony, Prof. S. S. Haldeman and the late Dr. Aug. A. Gould, with great liberality, sent to me their types; and in these collections and that of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, I also found types of many of the species described by Say and Conrad. Most of my synonymy is derived from the direct comparison of these typical shells, and to this extent I believe my work will prove to be reliable.
