Notes:

Correspondence from George Thurber to John Torrey, dated 1851-1869. The correspondence begins with Thurber in Texas, working on the Boundary Survey. He moves on to Providence, Rhode Island, and two main themes emerge in his letters-- botanical work, and a seemingly endless search for adequate employment. The latter gradually takes over Thurber's later letters, along with bouts of malaria in the moquito-ridden landscape of Lansing, Michigan, and concerns about the political climate of the country as the 1860s begin. Obsolete plant names mentioned include Cereus giganteus, Cereus thurberi, Dalea spinosa, Fougeria, Megarrhiza, and Vilfa utilis.
