It was thought prudent,
for a variety of reasons, to electronically publish my transcription of and
notes to the following letters by Asa Gray of Cambridge, Mass. to George W.
Clinton of Buffalo, New York. These letters constitute most of those Mr.
Clinton retained of his correspondence with Gray during the years between and
including 1865 and 1877. Some letters, although listed as present in a
catalogue to the letters compiled by the research librarian at the Buffalo
Museum of Science some ten years ago, were absent when the present writer
first began to transcribe the
I have included certain of the notes I have made while transcribing this collection and await more leisure to complete my annotations of the letters. However, I see no reason to withhold the content of these letters from the public at this time.
I thank the following sequence of research librarians of the Buffalo Museum of Science during the decade the correspondence was transcribed: Lisa Seivert, who, with her volunteers, constructed the excellent original digital index and catalogue to these letters, her successors Rachael Brew, David Hemmingway, and Kathy Leacock, the present research librarian.
