Notes:

Correspondence from T. Charlton Henry to John Torrey, dated 1854, discussing his present posting as assistant army surgeon at Fort Thorn in New Mexico, and the limited botanical opportunities it offers. "I have passed so much of my time among the bears and foxes that every plant tho' unfamiliar by name is yet so by sight," he writes. He adds, "You are probably aware that almost all my plants &c. have to be collected as it were with finger on trigger..." At the end of the letter Henry includes 3 small pencil sketches of the flower of an unidentified plant he is sending Torrey. Obsolete plant name Hypoxis erecta is mentioned.
