Notes:

Correspondence from John Edgar to John Torrey, dated September 25, 1849. In a short note full of playful language and references, Edgar recalls the pleasure he took in his past meeting with Torrey, and reminds him that there is "a warm bed ready for you every day and every night" should he wish to visit Ireland again. The letter may have accompanied a photograph of Edgar, as he makes reference to "perpetrat[ing] the vanity of presenting you with my ugly phiz..."
