Notes:

Correspondence from George Arnott Walker-Arnott to John Torrey, dated 1832-1849, including copious opinions on plants, publications, and mutual acquaintances and friends. In 1833 Walker-Arnott writes in happy anticipation of Torrey's visit to Scotland; and in 1835 thanking him for a gift of shoes, which he laments his wife has appropriated and asks if another smaller pair might be obtained for her. In 1845, after a four year hiatus from both botany and correspondence due to family matters, Walker-Arnott tells Torrey he has been appointed to a professorship at the University of Glasgow and will be moving there. Later correspondence laments the difficulty of maintaining personal botanical work alongside a teaching career. Also included in the collection is an undated leaf of "Notes for an answer to Mr. Arnott's letter" which seems to have been prepared both by Torrey and Asa Gray. Obsolete plant classifications mentioned include Asclepiadeceae, Crucifera, and Vilfa.
