Description

Letter responding to Beatrix Farrand's letter of January 10 (D:BF 1941.01.10), emphasizing Beatrix Farrand's usefulness to the "new [Harvard] order" at Dumbarton Oaks and how the focus of Dumbarton Oaks, and consequently the gardens, will have to change. John Thacher responds to her earlier suggestion of preparing material for their meeting by stressing that the general problem of how the gardens can be changed should be their main concern.
