[R] Using the get() function on an object within a list

I am trying use the get function to return the value of an object within a
list. As an abbreviated example:
"original" represents a list of several objects, one of which is "a.1".
names(original) <- c("a.1","a.2","a.3","b.1","b.2")
original$a.1 <- c(4,3)
When I enter:
R returns the following vector
 4 3
however, when I enter:
R returns the following error:
"Error in get("original$a.1") : object 'original$a.1' not found"
Does anyone happen to know how to resolve this error?
I pose this question because ultimately I would like to use the get function
to convert particular objects within "original" into separate lists as:
species <- c(1,2,3)
A <- vector('list',length(species))
A <- lapply(paste("original$a.", species, sep=""), get)
I apologize if I missed this question in a previous post.
