Notes:

Correspondence from Hardy Bryan Croom to John Torrey, dated 1834-1837, discussing personal and botanical matters. Croom writes from both his home in New Bern, North Carolina, and northwestern Florida, where he has established a plantation and collects plants and other natural specimens. Croom make the occasional comment on the politics of the day, but speaks most often and most passionately about the plants of Florida. In the last two letters in the collection Croom discusses his plans to move his family to Charleston and Florida; the last letter is written six months before Croom and his entire family perished in a shipwreck on the way to their new home. Obsolete plant names mentioned include Catalpa cordifolia, Chaptalia integrifolia, Houstonia rotundifolia, Peucedanum ternatum, Nuttallia, Nyssa candicans, and Thyrsanthus.
