Correspondence from William Christy, Jr. to John Torrey, dated 1833-1837. The first is a note written while Torrey was in London, asking him to dinner the following Wednesday. In two of the letters Christy introduces entomological colleagues who are travelling to New York (R.H. Lewis, Edward Doubleday, and Robert Foster). The bulk of Christy's communication concerns the shipment and receipt of specimens, and requests and offers of more: for his part, Christy requests plants from Georgia and from those collected by Schweinitz, as well as an American bullfrog. He enthusiastically tells Torrey of plants he has received from Chile and Australia. After news of New York's great fire of 1836 Christy expresses the hope that Torrey was unaffected.
