Letter from Sterling Morton to Clarence E. Godshalk. He is sorry that Godshalk has been held up by a strike. He hopes the fire door between the old and new buildings will be installed for the dedication. The lobby, general office, curved hall and lecture room are important to be finished for viewers. He is sorry for the overhead door trouble at South Farm. He had to install a motor and remote control for Mrs. Morton to open their door at Lake Forest, but that shouldn't be needed at South Farm. What should be done with the Jaffray house? He likes the idea of having independent contractors [Price] do the tree trimming as opposed to the full wages of an employee [Sharpless]. Ask the Salt Company to donate an addressograph machine that they no longer are using rather than buy one for the Arboretum. He is surprised that the Dutch elm disease has taken hold in the Arboretum, but is assured that Godshalk will identify, remove and burn them as quick as possible.  He questions how the beetles can travel so far so fast. Mrs. Zurcher is working on plans for the September 27 dedication. He is pleased that she is getting so energetically involved. He hopes that Morton family member stay involved for years to come.
