Letter from Sterling Morton to C. E. Godshalk saying Ed is working on getting some things straightened out at the Arboretum. Morton is happy they are taking out the steps in the lecture room and sloping the entire floor which will give better visibility. He suggests that a platform be put behind the information desk, so the employee may be seated while interacting with the public, but be at their level while they are standing. He hopes it will be possible to go ahead and obtain bids for the project in March. He wants to give careful study to Godshalk's plan for the entrances. He says it is nice that Godshalk is so confident the Arboretum can secure the Jones land. The Shade Tree Conference is in September, and they would be happy for Godshalk to stay with them if he attends, but would understand if he would rather stay at the headquarters. He congratulates Godshalk on the liquidation of the farm. The toll road situation seems somewhat fluid, but Morton is happy there will be 618 feet from Warrenville Road for the south boundary of the toll road.
