Letter from Marion George, secretary to Sterling Morton, apologizing for the error in transcription that was made in a letter to Mr. McClave of The Northern Trust, which Godshalk was copied on. In Santa Barbara, Mr. Morton uses a SoundScriber and the letters are transcribed and mailed from Chicago. The original letter was wrongly transcribed by Marion George. It implied that Morton thought the gingko tree was related to the locust tree.  Morton caught the error and wanted to preserve his reputation as a botanist.
