Letter from Sterling Morton to C. E. Godshalk sharing his reaction to Mr. Tikalsky's proposal about adding peonies to the Arboretum. He is sending Tikalsky's proposal, along with a copy of this letter, to Mrs. Zurcher who will distribute them to the other trustees. Morton's reaction is unfavorable since the Arboretum was created for woody plants, and peonies are perennials which seem out of line with the Arboretum's purpose. The trustees need to decide whether or not they want to get into perennial gardens as well as woody plants.
