  • Description
  • A letter to Benjamin Silliman in which Edward Hitchcock requests that Silliman send him books containing European geologists' writings on "the deluge." In a section added over two weeks after the initial letter, Hitchcock also updates Silliman on his progress with an article he is preparing about bird tracks, letting Silliman know how many pages he expects the essay to be, and how many image plates he expects will be needed.
