Excerpt from Reliquiae Baldwinianae: Selections From the Correspondence of the Late William Baldwin With Occasional Notes, and a Short Biographical Memoir Among the various topics of Botanical interest, discussed during your recent most acceptable visit to this place, it was suggested by you, that it was due to the memory and deserts of the late Doctor baldwin, that a notice of his zealous and inde fatigable labors, in the cause of American Botany, should be prepared by some contemporary, who had a personal knowledge Of his worth, as a Mam - and who might possess evidences of his extraordinary devotion to that department Of our Natural History.

You were pleased to intimate, that the advantages which I had enjoyed, Of a long acquaintance, and a familiar correspondence with my lamented Friend, might perhaps enable me to contribute something to wards the performance Of that duty. Sensible as I was, and am, of my inadequacy to the task, I will yet confess to you that the suggestion touched a responsive chord in my bosom. I had long felt, that the estimable character Of doctor-baldwin - no less than his laudable exertions as a Naturalist - gave him strong claims to the affection ate remembrance Of every kindred spirit; while his rare industry and sagacity entitled him to take rank with the most deserving Of our Pioneers in the field of American Botany.
