Notes:

Correspondence from Samuel Boykin, Sr. to John Torrey, dated 1835-1847, primarily discussing botanical matters, particularly the plants of Georgia, which Boykin ships to Torrey periodically. Between bouts of illness and intense work Boykin lists the plants he has collected or seen, with the occasional digression into matters of their classification under the systems of Nuttall and Lindley. Boykin seems particularly interested in Asclepias. Obsolete and unresolved plant names mentioned include Acerates, Acerates longifolia, Ananthrix connivens, Ananthrix nuttaliana, Ansonia salicifolia, Asclepiadeae, Asclepias labrifolia, Beyricha, Boykinia trispora, Centaurella paniculata, Convolvulus batatas, Eryngium ovalifolium, Hypopitys lanuginosa, Justicia pedunculosa, Lirium, Lobelia paniculata, Neottia odorata, Pogonia divaricata, Pontederia biflora, Pontederia lanceolata, Rhus pumila, Sarracenia variolaris, Scilla esculenta, Tofieldia pubens, Utricularia biflora, and Utricularia fibrosa.
