Letter from Sterling Morton to C. E. Godshalk sharing information about his use of the Contax camera. Mrs. Morton has recovered from her digestive issues, but is now under the weather from another issue; they may not travel to Chicago on the 29th as planned. He used the slate or granite on his Lake Forest front driveway. It has a tendency to move under automobiles, but should stay put for foot traffic. It should have a good base under it. They have fine gravel on their paths in Santa Barbara, but it tends to grind up under traffic, including foot traffic. He asks Godshalk to put in small stakes outlining the proposed terrace. He agrees with Godshalk on where the opening in the wall should be. He is not pleased with the idea of using aluminum brackets on the concrete to hold the wooden treads of the proposed steps from the terrace outside the Rotunda. He offers alternative suggestions. It's perfectly all right with Morton if the revolving door extends into the Thornhill lobby. He is pleased the overpass is coming along. He didn't know they were building a swimming pool for staff when they built Arbor Lake; he hopes proper precautions have been taken to protect children. Jim Donnelly (Illinois Manufacturers' Association) send Morton an article from the Lisle "Advertiser" that spoke nicely about the Arboretum. Morton would like any additional articles in the series sent to him. He has written to Godshalk about the Amsterdam exhibit; he will make his contribution from his personal funds.
