Notes:

Correspondence from J.J. Lawrence to John Torrey, dated 1836-1845. In Lawrence's first letter, written the year he arrived in Sri Lanka (then Ceylon) as a missionary, he reassures Torrey that "I have not forgotten your request for insects, &c." He goes on to explain that he's been unable to persuade any of "the natives" to collect insects for him because of their religious beliefs: "No money that I have offered hitherto has overcome their reluctance to take away life--" He does, however, have some shells for Torrey, as well as some leaves and a "vial of scarlet bugs" collected by another missionary. Lawrence's second and third letters are addressed from Dindigul in modern-day Tamil Nadu, India; he discusses the geology of the area, as he did from his posting in Sri Lanka, and sends Torrey a few plant specimens he has managed to collect, as well as a set of plants collected by a William Elliot, Esq. of the Madras Civil Service.
