1 The Cornus mas of botanists; probably the Frutex sanguineus mentioned in c. 30. See also B. xv. c. 31.
2 Probably the Lonicera Alpiena of Linnæus; the fruit of which resembles a cherry, but is of a sour flavour, and produces vomiting.
3 The wood is so durable, that a tree of this kind in the forest of Montmorency is said to be a thousand years old.
4 See B. xviii. cc. 59,60.
5 See c. 6 of this Book.
