Correspondence from William Marbury Carpenter to John Torrey, dated 1839-1840, discussing botanical subjects and the pitfalls of shipping plant specimens and hand-delivering letters. The last document in the collection is a page from an unidentified draft article on niobium and niobium ore (called here columbium and columbite, respectively). Obsolete and unresolved botanical and mineralogical terms used include Agrostis indica, Aspidium cristatum, Columbite, Columbium, Gnaphalium monocephalum, Laurus carolinensis, Planera gmelinii, and Tradescantia virginica.
