Description

Letter responding to a letter sent to her by Beatrix Farrand and discusses Dumbarton Oaks garden matters; Anne Sweeney's position; feelings on the Odilon Redon painting; upcoming meeting between Beatrix Farrand and John Thacher in Boston; Santa Barbara Botanic Garden director's house; and Dumbarton Oaks Park matters. She reports on the health of Annie Louise Bliss Warren, sister of Robert Bliss.

Mildred Bliss suggests the name "Dumbarton Brook" instead of "D.O. Park" as it maintains the Dumbarton, yet eliminates the confusion with the name Dumbarton Oaks Gardens.
