Notes:

Correspondence from missionary Daniel Jerome Macgowan-- in China-- to John Torrey, dated 1853, asking Torrey to "offer my services to any Agricultural, Horticultural, or other Society which would take an interest in the introduction of plants from this side of the Pacific to the U. States." He has already approached the U.S. Patent Office but the compensation they offered was insufficient to make shipping anything other than seeds feasible. He goes on to reminisce about breakfasting with the Torrey family ten years earlier.
