Letter from Joy Morton to Clarence E. Godshalk. Mr. Denny has resigned and will be moving to Florida. Morton would like to find a well-educated woman in her 40s who would keep the books, take shorthand to write Morton's letters, and catalogue and care for the books in the stacks. He suggests putting a telephone in the hall near the Stacks area where she could work. Godshalk would have to arrange for her board and room. This person might even be of help to him if he "possibly might be tempted to write a book on the early Nebraska experiences." He has lots of data to produce something worthwhile. He also explores the idea of grooming a man to eventually become Assistant Superintendent of the Arboretum, when that position is needed.  They travelled to the General Sherman Park, but the roads and paths were too washed out to hike to the General Sherman Sequoia tree.
