Description

Letter discusses petty cash expenditures made by Anne Sweeney and the accounting for them. It includes excepts from a letter Beatrix Farrand sent to Mildred Bliss informing her of the expenditures and need for a check to pay Anne Sweeney. Beatrix Farrand mentions that she is quite busy preparing reports for the [Harvard University] Trustees and Garden Clubs and bulletins for Arnold Arboretum and Reef Point. She has little time to do much else, so Anne Sweeney may not receive books as quickly as she wants them.

Beatrix Farrand asks for a picture of Heracleum Mantegazzianum.

Written on Beatrix Farrand's letterhead with a note and hand signature by her.

Title created by cataloger.
