Letter from Sterling Morton to Clarence E. Godshalk. He has been going over the drawings for "my place" [Lake Forest] and he likes the suggestions which Godshalk has made, especially to cut down on maintenance. Wagstaff has submitted a drawing similar to Godshalk's, although he hasn't compared the planting list. He thanks Godshalk for the time and effort he has put in, but he urges Godshalk to spend his time on the large job at the Arboretum. Morton hopes to move in during the spring when he'll be on hand to oversee implementation of the plans. A [reporter] from SPOUT was out asking for details and taking pictures of the construction. He is quite in agreement with Godshalk's idea to make the Arboretum the center of Dutch elm disease research for the Chicago area. Based on the work they have done so far, the Arboretum is well positioned to assume that lead.
