Notes

Correspondence from Joseph Dalton Hooker to John Torrey, dated March 1, 1866, written on mourning stationary. Hooker informs Torrey that, in a recent letter from Asa Gray, he has received "a very nice photograph of yourself in which I can trace the lineaments of a very old & kind friend, with a very thoughtful face..." He says he has asked Francis Boott's widow to forward Torrey a carte de visite of Boott, and that he is also enclosing photographs of his father-- who died the previous year-- and himself. In closing, he adds that his mother and sister are doing "remarkably well" and spending the winter in Torquay.
