Notes:

Correspondence from Anne Mary Perceval to John Torrey, undated (circa 1838-1840), unsigned, and written in the third person. Beginning "Mrs. Perceval presents her comp'ts and returns her best thanks to Dr. Torrey for his most obliging kindness...", the note thanks Torrey for sending some "sheets" of the Flora of North America and asks that she and several of her friends be listed as subscribers to it. She then offers any assistance she might be able to give him in his work on it -- though "she pleads almost entire ignorance of the Grasses..."-- and promises to send not only an 1819 catalog of plants by Pursh, made in the Chaudière Falls region on the Ontario-Quebec border, but her own catalog of Quebec plants, made while she was resident there.

In English.
