Notes:

These includes the various original invoices and other official papers of the U. S. Exploring Expedition. Included are correspondence, specimen lists, and invoices. There are varying amounts of information given in the correspondence relating to the shipments of specimens. They generally describe contents, main type of element collected, sometimes information about the collector. Lists sometimes give collecting location and description. Correspondence also relates lists of sketches that were sent back, including descriptions. Materials include official letters to Capt. Wilkes, 1839 - 1840, mostly transmitting shipping lists of specimens, and some loose sheets from the purser's account book, 1838; original invoices of shells, 1839 - 1840; original invoices of miscellaneous specimens, 1839 - 1841; original invoices and catalogue of geological and mineralogical specimens, 1839 - 1840. There are several references to Orange Harbour.
