Description

Responds to Beatrix Farrand's letters of September 1st, 4th and 8th, 1944 and states she will be at Dumbarton Oaks for Beatrix Farrand's visit as Robert Bliss has cancelled his leave. Mentions that Mildred Bliss is relieved and greatly satisfied that Beatrix Farrand has been elected to the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden Board of Trustees. She has returned the article for the Landscape Architecture journal to John Thacher and feels it is "certainly anodyne."

Mildred Bliss describes the dogwood turning and autumn being in the air. She feels some of the roses are "first-rate but there is a dearth of colour in the garden at this season."

Handwritten signature and corrections in black ink.

Typewritten letter on folded half sheet, front and back on Mildred Bliss' letterhead. No typewritten words inside the fold.

Carbon copy also in Collection.
