Notes

Correspondence from John Lewis Russell to John Torrey, dated 1838, discussing an unidentified plant specimen, and offering congratulations to Torrey on the commencement of his North American flora and to Asa Gray on his appointment as professor at Harvard. He also mentions his newfound passion for fossil plants, spurred by the sight of Jacob Bailey's "fossil animalcules" (diatoms).
