Notes:

Correspondence from John L. LeConte to John Torrey, dated April 3, 1866. LeConte tells Torrey that Charles E. Smith has several specimens of Tipularia for him, if he would like them; then goes on to describe the oil prospecting exploits of his friend Jonathan Letterman in California and asks Torrey to inquire of "the grease men in New York, who deal in oil stocks" how and where he might go about selling stock in the Philadelphia and California Petroleum Company, on Letterman's advice.

In English.
