Notes:

Correspondence from Dorothea Lynde Dix to John Torrey, undated. Dix, better known for her work as an educator and reformer, primarily discusses plants in her letters. The first letter, dated only November 19 but received-- according to Torrey's note-- on February 5, 1833, accompanied a specimen of Ficus Dix collected on her recent trip to St. Croix; she playfully regrets that she could not have brought Torrey a breadfruit tree. The second letter, undated but likely later than the first, was written aboard a steamer and accompanies a specimen of "lotus" that Dix collected from "the marshes below Philadelphia." The third letter, also undated, describes this same "lotus" in detail, and is addressed to both Torrey and "Prof. Henry"-- possibly Joseph Henry. Obsolete plant names mentioned include Ficus indica and Nelumbium luteum.
