In an effort to find an environment in which he could regain his health, during the summer of 1871 Terry made a trip to Minnesota, where the dry, invigorating atmosphere was reported to be helpful for tuberculosis sufferers. There is no record that Emily accompanied her husband on this reconnaissance mission. While in Minnesota he visited the Indian Agencies and preached in Plymouth Church, St. Paul, then housed on Goodrich Street in a small chapel. 3 He would consider a call, he said, if they would consider building a new church—"no respectable man would consent to preach in such a house," he said of their present building.
Subjects of mutual interest—collections, plant identifications, new information, new books, field trips—Terry discussed in an active correspondence with other botanists, both professional and amateur. 8 As winter wore on, Terry eagerly looked forward to the special botanical joys that spring would bring. One of these was her fern garden. Although her college duties were particularly demanding during the spring semester, Terry nevertheless made time to maintain a flower bed in front of Hubbard House and a small fern garden, in which she took special delight.
As a result, sixty-one species of Minnesota plants (plus a few that are unidentified) are illustrated in the forty-nine Minnesota paintings. Rarely did Terry add animal species to her paintings. Only three works are so embellished: one with a dragonfly; one with a dragonfly and a spider ("An aerial visitor, and an example of protective coloring in the spider," Terry notes); and one with four butterflies. 28 Mention has already been made of three paintings in the collection that remain from Terry's art-student days at 31 The Minnesota Years (1872-1884) The Cooper Union.
