Field notes Vol. 68 documents Nathaniel Lord Britton, Elizabeth Gertrude Knight Britton, and Percy Wilson's botanical collecting in Cuba in 1903 on a New York Botanical Garden expedition, and other collections in Cuba by A.H. Curtiss, Norman Taylor, E. Cabada, and F.S. Earle. It is comprised of a list of specimen numbers 1-517 collected by the Brittons and Wilson in 1903 in Matanzas, Santa Clara, and Havana; another list of specimen numbers 213-764 collected by A.H. Curtiss in Isle of Pines in 1904; another list of specimen numbers 1-570 collected by Norman Taylor in Sevilla Estate near Santiago in 1906; another undated list of specimen numbers 1-10 collected by E. Cabada in Cienfuegos; and an undated list of specimen numbers 600-767 collected by F.S. Earle in Herradura. Entries typically include both genus and species, and locations for some. Individual entries are not dated. A pocket contains a copy of Curtiss' 1905 publication entitled List of series III. of Curtiss' West Indian plants : collected in the province of Havana, Cuba, in 1904-05, and five small fragments of notes and collection labels. This list was likely compiled in the NYBG Herbarium; the original field notes for Britton's 1903 specimen numbers 1-523 can be found in Field notes Vol. 157, and for Taylor's 1906 specimen numbers 1-570 in Field notes Vol. 158.
