Notes

Correspondence from Zaccheus Collins to John Torrey and William Baldwin, dated 1817-1819. The first letter, dated November 24, 1817, from Collins to William Baldwin aboard the ship "Congress," thanks Baldwin for three packages of plants and expresses some confusion as to Baldwin's request regarding the works of Elliott. The second, dated April 22, 1819, addressed to John Torrey, apologizes for the delay in answering Torrey's letters; Collins explains he has been suffering relapses of an eye injury from the previous summer and has been unable to read or write. He then describes an exchange he had with Rafinesque regarding local deposits of "blue iron earth."
