Two letters from George T. Davis to Harriott Pinckney Rutledge Holbrook, 1853-1854. The first letter (1853 Aug. 11) from Davis at Greenfield, Mass. to Mrs. Holbrook, care of Prof. Agassiz, Cambridge, Mass., discusses “a delightful time at Plymouth” and mutual friends and acquaintances (including Louis Agassiz). Another letter (1854 April 3) from Davis at Greenfield to Mrs. Holbrook concerns the lingering winter weather in his area, the Holbrooks’ approaching “summer migration,” literary topics, and a book on the origin of Christianity by Hennell. Davis also inquires about any “new varieties of fish that have had the happiness and honor of being caught, bottled, and catalogued by the Doctor.”
