Notes:

Correspondence from John Adams Dix to John Torrey, dated 1836, discussing Dix's offer of a position with the New York State Natural History Survey. Dix's rather officious tone in the first letter gives way to a more apologetic and defensive one in the second, as it appears Torrey and several other scientists he approached for the survey took offense at the low salaries being offered. Dix confesses that he and the governor were operating on the assumption that "fame, and not money, would be overwhelming consideration with those who should embark in the work."

In English.
