Letter from Sterling Morton to C.E. Godshalk saying he ran into Pearl Chase, and she had kind things to say about her visit with Godshalk. He encloses the article from the News-Press about Godshalk's talk; Morton thought it was excellent. The response to the talk makes Morton believe they are on the right track with their approach of sharing research that is applicable to the everyday homeowner. He hopes Godshalk had a successful trip up north. Morton is glad he was able to attend a few sessions at the conference and see the equipment. He went by Ott's hardware store to see the Gravely tractor they have for sale. It is in excellent shape. He will test it out to make sure it is working properly, and if so, will gift it to the Arboretum. If there is an infinite delay in shipping, they will go ahead and get a new machine. He says it was a pleasure having Godshalk with them, and he particularly enjoyed their drives. The record includes the newspaper clippings along with a short handwritten note.
