Letter from Sterling Morton to Clarence E. Godshalk. He was relieved by Godshalk's clarification of the Research Projects. It seems a well thought out plan. He offers suggestions on road construction data to be kept. Miss George sent you draft copies of the articles he is writing for Mrs. Zurcher's proposed book, and requests any comments. He agrees that keeping the Field Day Tests for Small Equipment should be kept small for the Chicago area only. He suggests $25 for Godshalk to pay for the old water heater, truck chassis and Heatolator for Godshalk's cabin in Wisconsin. For the 1929 Ford, Morton suggests that it might have more future utility than the $10 from selling it for scrap. He thanks him for installing the pines in Lake Forest and paying Arboretum men instead of the expense of professional tree men. In the spring add as many more pines as necessary, including at Mrs. Zurcher's property. He is pleased that the classes are doing so well. He suggests exploring a schedule and staff compensation to add more classes than one night.  He and Mrs. Morton went to Palm Springs to "bake out our virus infection," but they felt worse. So they cancelled the first part of their trip around the world until they are well. 
The cover note from Miss George to Godshalk indicates that the articles Morton wants Godshalk to review are attached.
