Description

Handwritten telegram copy asking Beatrix Farrand for replacement suggestions for cedar lebanon tree in the east lawn that was killed by the storm. Mildred Bliss wants to know if another Bride [Magnolia], slightly west of the cedar would do.

Mentions John Thacher agrees that topknot is essential for historic tablet, but unenthusiastic about the position. Museum tablet is good

Mildred wonders why her name should be included in the inscription on tablet above the door of the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens, Blaksley Library, but will accept whatever inscription Beatrix Farrand approves.

Mildred is homesick for Santa Barbara.

Telegram sent to Beatrix Farrand at the Valley Club Montecito, Santa Barbara, California.
