Letter from Sterling Morton to Clarence E. Godshalk. His recent medical tests confirm that he is in good health. He received the revised plan from Holabird & Root for the laboratories, etc, leaving the artistic end to Mrs. Zurcher. The butternut panel will look better than the bronze one. He is pleased that the Building Commission has dropped the idea of pre-fab houses, instead going for a solid masonry build, which will reduce future maintenance. He used Chlordane to keep frogs away from the residence. He's looking for suggestions to keep down the crabgrass in California. He's pleased with the progress on fencing. He comments on the possible use of salt on plants to treat diseases, but waits for Dr. Tehon's results. He urges Godshalk to attend conferences and meetings himself, to keep up with arboreta trends. He approves of changing off the new roof at Godshalk's house to the Chairman's Fund. He offers political comments on China, US and France.
