Notes

Correspondence from William Boott to John Torrey, dated 1842, primarily discussing ferns. He begins by mentioning that his search, conducted with Dr. Jacob Bigelow, for a missing specimen of Onoclea obtucilobata has not been successful. Boott tells Torrey that he has recently received a box of specimens from Hooker, and goes on to discuss various species of fern and his opinions on them. He closes by mentioning a trip he will soon make to Europe, and entreating Torrey to continue writing to his brother Francis Boott. Other obsolete species mentioned include: Aspidium noveboracense, Aspidium dilatatum, Aspidium intermedium, Aspidium spinulosum, Aspidium thelypteris, Aspidium cristatum, Aspidium lancastriense, Aspidium filix-femina, Aspidium angustum, Aspidium aplenoides, Aspidium schweinitizii, Polypodium dryopteris, and Polypodium flexagonopterum [?].
