3-page ALS addressed to Salmon Dutton of Cavendish, Vermont
Spafford Settlement, Venango County, PA, 1819. 4to, integral leaf attached, address panel onverso of second leaf; small loss not affecting text, else very good. A long and detailed letter from the author of A Gazetteer of the State of New-York in which he requests that Dutton send him a small seed sack of "Dutton Corn," a specimen he had read about in the Vermont Gazette. He maps out the route by which Dutton could feasibly send the corn, providing names of acquaintances in Rutland, Bennington, Albany, Onandaga, Buffalo, Benton, Boston, Concord, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh who could "cheerfully" currier the seed when possible. In return, "I offer the smaller specimens of the most approved varieties of wheat, from every quarter of the globe. I can send specimens...from Egypt, Russia, Italy, England, & France...Some grass seeds, also...from Italy--& many kinds of garden and other seeds, amounting in all, to about 100 specimens."
