Letter from Sterling Morton to Edward H. Baker. He discusses in detail his thoughts on the tollway and its impact on Morton Arboretum. "The stretch of right-of-way the toll road authorities can secure from the Arboretum is probably one of the longest to be secured from private individuals."  That should give extra bargaining power and leverage in location and other requests. The land to the south of the tollway should be disposed of. Property values are increasing here, which should be to their advantage. It appears that the Arboretum boundaries are largely determined. Godshalk can proceed with fencing plans, road development, housing and water development.
