Letter from Sterling Morton to Clarence E. Godshalk. He remembers that on this date in 1912 he was taken to the hospital with typhoid. He's "rapidly gaining" from his latest attack. He asks if the library has any books on geometrical designs for formal plantings. The frogs have made a mess of their small pool and they are considering replacing it with some design. Mrs. Morton caught eight frogs which she took to the big pond and watched the blue gills devour them. He sends along a slide of gardens in Isola  Bella, Italy that inspire him. He continues in great detail as to the existing space and what he envisions there instead. Please mail him any related books, and the slide.  He hopes that good weather will give the Arboretum progress on housing, roads, and all the other work ahead for the year.
