Letter from Sterling Morton to Clarence E. Godshalk. Congratulations to Mr. Baker and Godshalk for creating the sale of gravel to the highway department, bringing in $700 per day. The new lake will be 18 feet deep, bigger than Lake Marmo, and it should be able to keep itself clear. This lake should be fenced to prevent accidents with swimmers. We should save some of the gravel for our needs. The highway department has separated the top soil for later landscaping use. The housing project should also be fenced off from the rest of the Arboretum, for privacy. Having ridden in a Zeppelin and an airplane, he is looking forward to a helicopter ride. He asks if Mr. Kluckhohn was successful in moving the very large gingko. He's interested in moving an 18 inch diameter maple. He will be back in October and is anxious to see all of the progress.
