Description

Typewritten letter mentions Robert Patterson to share his visit to Dumbarton Oaks with Beatrix Farrand, and Anne Sweeney can travel to Reef Point to discuss the planting list after July 1, 1947. Anne Sweeney is returning the plant record notes after Mildred Bliss made comments along with a copy of the book list which includes books from Reef Point Garden Library, Harvard Landscape Library, Massachusetts Horticultural Library, and the United States Department of Agriculture Library.

Anne Sweeney reports the gardens will be closed for a week due to the Dumbarton Oaks Symposium [Byzantine Art and Scholarship] which will conclude with a luncheon and music in the Orangery on Saturday afternoon [April 26, 1947].

Arnoldia leaflets were given to Anne Sweeney presumably from Beatrix Farrand, and she comments on seeing Beatrix Farrand's guiding hand concerning the addition made to the Arnold Arboretum.

Copy of original typed letter, double sided and unsigned. Probably created by Anne Sweeney as she was working with Beatrix Farrand on the plant record notes (Beatrix Farrand's Plant Book for Dumbarton Oaks) and the garden book list.

Title created by cataloger.
