Notes:

Correspondence from William L. Marcy to John Torrey, dated 1836. In the first letter, dated April 27, Marcy attempts to pursuade a skeptical Torrey that the terms being offered by the state of New York to scientists participating in its natural history survey are not as bad as he thinks: "... a more definite explanation of [the terms] may induce you to view them in a more favorable light..." This letter appears to be missing a page. In the second letter, dated July 16, it appears Torrey has accepted the commission; Marcy discusses further arrangements for performing the survey and some of the other naturalists he is attempting to recruit.

In English.
