Notes:

Correspondence from John Locke to John Torrey, dated 1854, discussing some issues around a specimen that Locke and Torrey identified as Calamagrostis arenaria (now Ammophila arenaria) in 1848. Lock has discovered that Asa Gray, on reading Locke's description of the plant, decided that Torrey would now change his mind as to the novelty of the species and stopped publication of Locke's description. Locke has copied the text of Gray's letter to Dana regarding the specimen-- furnished by Dana by way of explanation-- into his own letter.
