It is the purpose of this paper to correct, as far as progress of field work will allow, the most glaring errors. The writer has published a number of papers dealing chiefly with the marine Middle and Upper Devonian stratigraphy of the State.1 These contain preliminary statements relating to the continental Devonian.
