Abstract:

Photocopies of correspondence of Kennicott, Kirtland and Baird. Some letters of John Kennicott to Baird. Kennicott's letters are lengthy, entertaining, exuberant and shine with the joy and curiosity he felt in the natural world.

He asks for guidance and criticism of his work and freely shows his appreciation and admiration for their work and help. The need for a Chicago natural history society and museum is a frequent topic as well as his need for equippment and funds.
