Description

Typewritten letter informs Isabelle M. Stover that Anne Sweeney has not heard back from Dorothy St. John Manks on books offered for sale at the Massachusetts Horticultural Society Library. Anne Sweeney acknowledges that the John Gerard, Herball once available has been sold and the Humphry Repton title is not desirable. She mentions that all but one book title on Beatrix Farrand's list included in a recent letter is already in the Dumbarton Oaks Garden Library.

Copy of original letter, unsigned.

Probably created by Anne Sweeney based on related letters discussing titles on a book list, the John Gerard, Herball and Humphry Repton title, Observations on the theory and practice of landscape gardening.

Title created by cataloger.
