This field book contains notes on plant species found in various parts of Mexico. There are no specimen numbers. Localities of these plants include but are not limited to Yautepec, Tehuacan, Popocatépetl, Iztaccíhuatl, Oaxaca, and Jalisco. This book is undated but it is inferred that it was created between the years 1892 and 1906 because Nelson spent these years researching in Mexico.
