Notes

Correspondence from William Oakes to John Torrey, dated 1823-1841, discussing a wealth of plants, particularly New England plants, and Oakes' cherished dream of a flora of the region. "I confess I am somewhat surprised that a Botanist of your liberal notions should doubt the value of a well executed Flora of N.E.," he writes in 1828. For Torrey's flora of North America, Oakes has nothing but encouragement, and he is constantly recommending correspondants and associates to his friend, like "Mr. Cushing of Cambridge." Obsolete and unresolved plant names mantioned include Archangelica, Arenaria peploides, Azalea procumbens, Eriophorum alpinum, Erythraea ramosissima, Galium littellii, Myriophyllum scabratum, Salicornia ambigua, Senecio aureus, Utricularia greenei, Vaccinium oxycoccus, and Viburnum pauciflorum.
