Notes

Correspondence from Thomas Nuttall to John Torrey, dated 1820-1838, discussing a large number of plant species, punctuated with the occasional personal observation, as in 1836 when he observes that the Philadelphia winter seems "arctic" after two winters in the Sandwich Islands. One document is a page from an undated manuscript copy of Nuttall's "Genera of North American Plants." Obsolete plant names mentioned include Aira, Drepanolobus, Lauchneria, Pitcheria, Pronalea, and Wrayia.
