Abstract:

Correspondence from Robert Graham to John Torrey, dated 1836, points out that the latest letter he has received from Torrey took over a year to arrive via his guest Wilbur Fisk. He laments the fact that, because of his wife's illness, he could not be as good a host as he would like. Since a book he previously sent Torrey never arrived, he is sending another. At the end of the letter, Graham squeezes all his botanical news into a postscript. Obsolete plant names mentioned include Cooperia, Gentiana quinqueflora, Hebradendron, Poinsettia, and Stalagmites.
