Notes:

Correspondence from Alva Bennett to John Torrey, dated 1836, asking to know the names of a group of plants from Key West that he showed Torrey the previous year. Bennett asks if they will be included in Torrey's "Botany," and when the project will be done. Bennet also asks for some of his specimens of cactus and agave to be returned, solicits an opinion on which book on plant physiology Torrey would recommend, and closes "if you have any commends [sic] for anything in the way of Botany here on the banks of the Geneseo, I should be happy to endevour to execute them."
