Abstract:

Correspondence from Stephen T. Olney to John Torrey, dated 1845-1871. Olney's correspondence covers two brief periods: 1845-1847, and 1868-1871. Both sections are greatly concerned with the genus Carex, and it dominates the latter period. Olney also discusses both his and Torrey's publications, the constant flow of specimens back and forth, and their mutual acquaintances in the scientific world. Later letters are somewhat more candid and personal in tone, often sending regards to Torrey's daughter Margaret ("Maggie"), and expressing a degree of bitterness and frustration in his botanical endeavours. "I have lived on hoping that the various acts of injustice practiced towards me, even to the witholding my botanical bundles ... would come to an end during my life," he writes in his last letter. "I begin to despair, however ... There is one thing certain. I am not to be driven out of Rhode Island on any pretext whatever, to enable designing knaves to trifle with my intent." Obsolete plant names mentioned include Isolepis capillaris, Psilocarya, Trichelostylis, and Vesicaria.
