Description

Letter discusses Anne Sweeney to visit Reef Point, Bar Harbor, Maine after Labor Day, and Mildred Bliss was pleased with her visit to Reef Point. Beatrix Farrand cautions Anne Sweeney to work with a trained cataloger like Caroline Shillaber to organize material from the Founders' Room rather than Rose Willgoose, who is not trained.

Beatrix Farrand mentions the Dumbarton Oaks Gardens Superintendent transition from James Bryce to Matthew Kearney has gone more smoothly than expected, and she feels Matthew Kearney may be more energetic than his predecessor.

Written on Beatrix Farrand's letterhead and hand signed by her.

Title created by cataloger.
