Notes:

Correspondence from Artemas Bigelow to John Torrey, dated 1855, pointing out that a position has opened up for a professor of chemistry at the University of Wisconsin and asking Torrey for a letter of recommendation. Bigelow quotes at length from recommendations he has already received from William Kitchell and Benedict Starr, then briefly discusses some plants and geological samples he collected a few years earlier in Alabama, which he and Torrey had examined together, including an item he had previously taken to be a petrified walnut. Bigelow say he has since cut it open and is now convinced it is a member of the genus Carya-- a hickory nut.
