Notes:

Correspondence from Daniel B. Smith to John Torrey, dated 1827 and 1865. In his early letter Smith reassures Torrey that a promised electrometer will be sent soon, and muses on the shortcomings of Linnaeus' sexual system. He reports that "our new review" -- probably the American Journal of Pharmacy-- has proven popular and suggests that Torrey might contribute an article on the state of American botany. Smith's later letter encloses a plant specimen for Torrey's perusal, and expresses the hope that Torrey's recent trip to California was both professionally and physically beneficial. Obsolete plant names mentioned include Telanthera.

In English.
