Notes:

Correspondence from army surgeon Nathan Sturges Jarvis to John Torrey, dated November 2, 1834. In a letter written from Fort Snelling, Minnesota, Jarvis tells Torrey that in accordance with "the wish expressed in your former [letter]," he has collected a number of local plants, which he will send when circumstances allow, along with a box of Mississippi River shells. He adds, however, "I am fearful [they] will not equal your expectation either in number or variety." He suggests that Torrey should visit the area: "To one so ardently attached to pursuits in Nat. Hist. as yourself the visit could not fail to be highly interesting..." Jarvis also makes reference to some political machinations in the New York City medical community, and expresses gratitude that he is far away from the situation.
