Letter from C. E. Godshalk to Joy Morton saying he was glad to get his telegram telling him to hire Kammerer. He goes on to list Kammerer's qualifications. Godshalk is having Kammerer check the Arboretum's card catalog with Van Gemert's to insure the accuracy of Arboretum records. He had Kammerer checking up on winter damage with him and is also making notes on the plants that have the best spring bark color. He wants to highlight these plants in the first bulletin. He would also like to include a list of plants rabbits prefer, so readers know which ones to protect. At the Arboretum, winter weather damage was slight, but rabbit damage was heavy. Everyone at the Arboretum seems to enjoy his work; he has given the men responsibilities in addition to their regular work freeing up Godshalk to study plant material. He has been testing the ground for frost, but it is still too sticky to work in. They are trimming dead branches and burning brush. They will continue to  move the crabapples and hawthornes when the soil is drier. He updates him on the dairy operation. Mr. Bixby sent him a letter saying the nut trees are dug and will be sent within a few days.
