Notes

Correspondence from Thomas Antisell to John Torrey, dated from 1853-1861. Earlier letters make frequent mention of the progress being made on volume 7 of the Pacific Railroad survey to which he and Torrey both contributed, as well as chemical experiments and the activities of other chemists and geologists of mutual acquaintance such as A.A. Hayes, G.C. Schaeffer, and C.F. Jackson. Antisell frequently voices his dissatisfaction with his government posts at the War Department and the Patent Office, and his attempts to find other employment and supplemental work lecturing at various medical colleges. Several letters are undated.
