Description

Typewritten letter discussing garden projects, including transplanting azaleas, trimming the Ficus, and rebuilding the Goat Trail. Mildred Bliss reports that a way needs to be found to prevent sacrificing the grounds of the Research Library and Collection. A letter is being drafted to make the official gift fool-proof.

A leaf and blossom were enclosed for Beatrix Farrand to identify.

Stamped in upper right hand corner: "The Secretary's Den, Public Steno-Notary, 19B E. Canon Perdido, PH. 24500 - RES. 24448."

Corrections to letter in ink and pencil.

Handwritten corrections and signature by Mildred Bliss.
