William Roscoe, Toxteth Park, [near Liverpool, Lancashire], to Sir James Edward Smith, Norwich, [Norfolk] Linnean Collections
Roscoe, William.
The severe winter confined him to home. Dissuades Smith from undertaking a cryptogamic flora after conclusion his present work ["English Flora"] on account of the enormous extent, minuteness of research, and Smith's bad eye-sight; believes such a work unworthy of Smith's station and talents. Unable to finish his description of 'Amomum melegueta' despite use of Smith's observations and article on 'Melegueta' in "Cyclopedia"; will wait for Smith to see his observations and drawing, with Mr Graves, the colourer, at Peckham, [Surrey]. Included 'Cardamom' plant and 'Renealmia/Alpinia exaltata' in his genus 'Matonia'; defends the latter with references to Smith's "Cyclopedia" article, [William] Roxburgh's "Plants of the Coast of Coromandel", and White's "Linnean...

William Roscoe, Toxteth Park, [near Liverpool, Lancashire], to Sir James Edward Smith, Norwich, [Norfolk] Linnean Collections
Roscoe, William.
Only just received Smith's letter of 7 April [1826]. Pleased by Smith's opinion of his "Monandrian Plants". Discusses plants to be included in his proposed genus 'Matonia', the true 'Cardamom' of the East and 'Renealmia/Alpinia exaltata'; notes on character. Obtained specimens of an 'Amomum' nearly related to Smith's 'A. macrospermum', the 'Zingiber melegueta' of Gaertner. Hopes Smith's family are relieved from the "vexation & anxiety" arising from the character of Mr Martin's business partner; defends himself for not saying anything of it at the time. Postscript in margin of recto of first folio: on Smith's recommendation giving his synoptical tables in Latin, not English.

William Roscoe, Toxteth Park, [near Liverpool, Lancashire], to Sir James Edward Smith, Norwich, [Norfolk] Linnean Collections
Roscoe, William.
Smith's ["English Flora"] will fulfill a "desideratum in the botany of this country that no other hand could have supplied". Discusses forthcoming numbers of his "Monandrian Plants", including: 'Maranta divaricata'; 'Phrynium parkeri'; 'Thalia geniculata'; compared 'Phrynium myrosma' with 'Myrosma canniformis' from Smith's herbarium and identified error by [Carl Ludwig] Willdenow who should have named 'Phrynium capitatum' 'Myrosma capitata'. Received from Demarara preserved flower of largest 'Amomum', conludes it is the melegueta pepper, or grains of paradise; observations. Committed to finishing his work before visiting Smith. Anxious about Dawson Turner's health. Unsure of reaction to his 'Matonia', which will unite the "finest aromatic plants of the...

William Roscoe, Toxteth [Park], near Liverpool, [Lancashire], to Sir James Edward Smith, Norwich, [Norfolk] Linnean Collections
Roscoe, William.
Prevented by his poor health and incessant occupations from joining the Smiths at Holkham, [Norfolk, home of Thomas William Coke]. Asks Smith's opinion of most recent parts of his "Monandrain Plants", particularly the descriptions. His greatest difficulty has been acquiring species of 'Amomum'; none have flowered [at Liverpool Botanic Garden]; asks if there are any in the drawings Smith received from Dr [Francis] Hamilton for "Exotic Botany". Settled the boundary between 'Maranta' and 'Phrynium', excluding [Georg Friedrich Wilhelm] Meyer's 'Calathea' which he has included in 'Phrynium', though notes that [John] Lindley [(1799-1865), botanist] is trying to establish it in new edition of "Bot. Reg." and Sprengel also recognises it.

William Roscoe, Toxteth Park, [near Liverpool, Lancashire], to Sir James Edward Smith, Norwich, [Norfolk] Linnean Collections
Roscoe, William.
Suffered a stroke on 16 December, affecting his speech and right-hand side of his body, but much recovered after copious bleeding, blistering, and other remedies; still confined to his library. Finished his catalogue of the Holkham manuscripts, although [Thomas William] Coke has postponed its publication. His botanical work ["Monandrian Plants"] almost completed. Shortly before his stroke he concluded his correspondence with New York respecting the discipline in the prisons there, closing his investigation, so for the first time in many years free from any literary engagements.

Roscoe, William.
Thanks for hospitality during his stay at Norwich. Literary activities: his work on [Alexander] Pope [(1688-1744), poet] drawing to a conclusion with just the biography to be printed; expecting to publish first part of his botanical work ["Monandrian plants"], in which is giving give the generic and specific characters and descriptions in English as his botanical phraseology is too limited; as Smith and [William] Roxburgh did in "Exotic Botany" and "Flora Indica".

William Roscoe, Toxteth Park, near Liverpool, [Lancashire], to Sir James Edward Smith, Saxmundham, [Suffolk] Linnean Collections
Roscoe, William.
Suffering from a nervous debility caused by overwork; fears he will be unable to take up invitation to Norfolk. Preparing to publish a memoir of Monandrian plants and would like Smith's opinion on his figures. Received letter from [Nathaniel] Wallich giving an account of his expedition to Nepal and Singapore, the diseases he suffered, and the "immense acquisitions" he has made, which form the most valuable collection of living plants the Liverpool Botanic Garden has ever received, including 'Scitamineae' roots which are already shooting thanks to being packed in moss; he did not have time to write to Smith. Rejoices with Smith on marriage of his "amiable niece".

William Roxburgh, 16 Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, [London], to Sir James Edward Smith Linnean Collections
Roxburgh, William.
Received Smith's letter of 9 [August 1814] but unfortunately state of his health since arrival in London prevents him from enjoying the society of his scientific friends, more so as Smith was to be one of them. Feeling stronger since the effects of the mercury subsided and as he expects a few years longer life hopes visit Smith in Norwich soon. They are giving up plans to go to Scotland and will either stay in London or go to France for the winter. Madagascar specimens received from Sir Joseph Banks, wishes Smith had taken his share on leaving town, and still awaiting the Indian specimens from Banks, asks how to make selection available to Smith. Has not heard anything respecting [Francis] Buchanan from the fleet just arrived. [Note in different hand...

William Roxburgh, 36 Bernard Street, Russell Square, [London], to James Edward Smith Linnean Collections
Roxburgh, William.
Regrets the accidents and misfortunes that have so far prevented him from meeting Smith; the climate here does not suit his "Indian constitution", intends to return there this spring. Just received a few ripe seeds of 'Cycas circinalis' from Calcutta, and were opened at Sir Joseph Banks' the other day, has reserved one for Smith to dissect. Banks is to select the drawings for second number of third volume of his "Plants of Coromandel" tomorrow; he had intended to publish four species of his genus 'Colebrookia', but as Smith discovered 'C. bulbifera' to be 'Globba marantina' Linnaeus as published in "Exotic botany" asks whether they are all to be made 'Globba' and [Henry Thomas] Colebrooke [(1765-1837), administrator in India and scholar] given another...

William Roxburgh, 36 Bernard Street, Russell Square, [London], to James Edward Smith, Norwich, [Norfolk] Linnean Collections
Roxburgh, William.
Thanks for Smith's letter of 8 [December 1806] and Norfolk turkey. Sir Joseph [Banks] ill but will tell him what Smith said of 'Globba'; needs to find Smith's "Exotic botany" 177, suspects it is another of his proposed 'Colebrookia' species. Asks if the new genus Smith has selected for 'Colebrookia' is [Francis] Buchanan's 'Sussodia', as he has two species of that genus selected for his volume ["Plants of the Coast of Coromandel"]. Informs Smith he has already named a genus for Colonel [Thomas] Hardwicke in first number of his third volume ["Plants of the Coast of Coromandel"]; details. Efforts to name a genus after Buchanan in same volume. Sending two seeds of 'Cycas circinalis', and one he dissected in order to provide figure, encloses sketch of the...

William Roxburgh, 36 Bernard Street, Russell Square, [London], to James Edward Smith, Surry Street, Norwich, [Norfolk] Linnean Collections
Roxburgh, William.
Expects to depart for Bengal next month. Almost finished his work on third volume of ["Plants of the Coast of Coromandel"]; appearance of the next depends much on Sir Joseph Banks' health; has withdrawn his 'Colebrookia oppositifolia' in consequence of Smith's remarks about 'Sussodia' and intending it for "Exotic botany", but still including the other species 'C. ternifolia', and 'Buchananica', despite having searched in vain for the 'Ava launzan' Smith said was already named for him. Smith's 'Globba racemosa' not one of his and does not know Smith's 'Leucosceptrum canum'. Doubts his ability to obtain the original 'Roxburghia' on account of its distance from Calcutta. Praises turkey received from Smith. Two seeds of the 'Cycas cirinalis' he sent Lady...

William Roxburgh, 4 Park Place, Edinburgh, to Sir James Edward Smith Linnean Collections
Roxburgh, William.
He has been constantly unwell since last seeing Smith; wishes for Smith to superintend the printing his Indian Flora ["Flora Indica"], under Smith's "own man" Taylor. Has had some discussion with [Robert] Brown on subject; they thought it best to translate the generic and specific characters into Latin and leave the rest in English; he is unable to take any active part in it.

William Roxburgh, 5 Prospect Place, Chelsea, [London], to James Edward Smith, Norwich, [Norfolk] Linnean Collections
Roxburgh, William.
Pleased to of recovery of Smith's health in his letter of 2 [January 1806]; his own bad health forced him to leave Bengal. Regrets his and Smith's missing each other in Liverpool; now little chance of their meeting until Smith comes to London in April. Contemplating a return to Bengal as the climate here is not agreeable. Comparing his specimens with [Aylmer Bourke] Lambert's; Lambert has almost convinced him that [Charles] Konig's 'Argostis linearis' is Smith's 'Panicum dactylon'; recommends Sir William Jones' figure of former in "Asiatick Researches" vol 4; requests Smith's assistance with all his Indian plants.

In addition to other items he is sending by Mr Brown also sending seeds, and box of insects gathered by Mr Le Beck, they both wish to become members of the Linnean Society; Le Beck will be a valuable correspondent as he intends to spend his life in India. Recently drew and described a new species of 'Dolphinus'; as large as common dolphin but without dorsal fin, 60 teeth in each jaw, and chiefly inhabits the Ganges river, calls it 'D. gangetica'. [Francis] Buchanan is visiting them; he will send Smith plants.

William Roxburgh, Cacluanara, [India], to Nathaniel Kindersley, Madras, [India] Linnean Collections
Roxburgh, William.
Sending plants from Mrs Saunders and himself via an American ship; hopes they reach Kindersley's friend [probably James Edward Smith] safely as it will be the first time many have been seen or known in Europe. Hopes Kindersley's family are well; he and Mrs Roxburgh have not been half so merry since they and the committee were here. Recommends Kindersley air the plants and clean the box on receipt.

William Roxburgh, Calcutta, [Bengal, India], to James Edward Smith Linnean Collections
Roxburgh, William.
Received Smith's letter of 16 December 1793 and letter and potato seeds from Mr Molesworth, none of them grew. Thanks for observations on the three 'Indigofera' plants, was uncertain about his 'Indigofera caeralia' ['Indigofera caerulea'?], comments that the seeds "vegetate" with difficulty which may prevent it being universally cultivated. Has sent Smith two capsules of 'Dillenia indica' and seeds of 53 species including 'Flemingia', shall send later 'Dillenia' flowers preserved in spirits. Sending 400 drawings, including 200 grasses, to the Directors [of the East India Company], wants Smith to point out any errors in them. Disappointed by his failure to grow 'Lythrum' as they do not have it but says 'Flemingia' is much more elegant. [John] Fleming...

Roxburgh, William.
Has found new plants in Bengal including 'Asjogam' of "Hortus Malabaricus" vol 5 tab 59, thinks it a new genus and has named it after the late Sir William Jones ['Jonesia'] [(1746-1794) philologist and scholar of ancient India]. A manuscript of Jones' botanical observations to be posthumously printed in "Asiatic Researches" vol 4. Sends Jones' description of the 'Asjogam' and his own with drawing, hopes Smith can publish one. Has 400-500 drawings of plants to send by the next ships, his previously sent drawing of 'Nauclea orientalis' incorrectly labelled. Bark of 'Corchorus olitorius' and 'Corochorus capsularis' discovered to be equal to "the best flax" and will be a valuable export, it was mentioned by [Georg Eberhard] Rumphius and asks if it is known if...
