Notes

Correspondence from Stephen H. Long to John Torrey and William Baldwin, dated 1819. The first letter, dated February 18, 1819, is addressed to John Torrey, and describes the possible forms of payment for prospective naturalists participating in Long's upcoming expedition: "It is left optionary with ourselves, whether a pecuniary consideration shall be allowed, or the Naturalists have the privilege of making any disposition they may deem proper, of the Curiosities &c., that we may collect. The utmost compensation that can be allowed is $2.00 per Day and one Ration..." The second letter, dated June 19, 1819, is a copy of official orders from Long to botanist William Baldwin, who participated-- and died-- on that expedition.
