Abstract:

One letter from Jacob (signed James) Georg Agardh to John Torrey, dated October 8, 1839, discussing Agardh's assumption of his father's "botanical obligations" and expressing a desire for further correspondence and sharing of specimens and publications with Torrey. The remaining three documents are fragments of unidentified, undated plant descriptions in English (bryophytes) and Latin (fungi), in two different hands. It's unclear if any of these are part of the list mentioned in the above letter.
