Description

Typewritten letter communicates the need to know what the Beatrix Farrand honorarium account and Beatrix Farrand, Agent account are due, so that the books can be closed and new accounts opened for Robert Patterson. John Thacher asks for Isabelle Stover's continued secretarial services for Robert Patterson if necessary, and he reports Robert Patterson's visit to Dumbarton Oaks was extremely satisfactory. The stone tiger is also being returned to Reef Point, Bar Harbor, Maine.

Copy of original letter, unsigned. Probably created by John Thacher as he paid the Beatrix Farrand expense accounts.

Perhaps a draft letter as a revised letter with identical topics was written the following day, April 18, 1947 (D:JT 1947.04.18) and received by Beatrix Farrand (D:BF 1947.04.21).
