Letter from [C.E. Godshalk] to Joy Morton informing him of Fred Von Oven's death. He sent a nice floral piece in Morton's name. They had a cold spell--20 degrees below zero--followed by flooding. Their most serious problem now is the rabbits; they are doing the best they can to protect everything. Fred Berg sent in 14 head of cattle for a total of $1312.58. This will help considerably in cutting down on their cost of operation. Fred is able to be up for short periods of time, but he is still badly bruised. Van Gemert is busy grafting the scions he collected last fall. They are beginning to receive acknowledgements of orders placed for small evergreens. In general things are going well, and they are in good health. He hope Morton and Mrs. Morton are well and enjoying the southern breezes.
