Letter from Sterling Morton to Clarence E. Godshalk, who is on vacation in London. Morton spent time at the Arboretum, planning for locations of gates and toll booths. Ed [Baker] said that the "map shelters" need to wait until later, to be "a little careful on expenses." "So that you can be thinking these matters over [while you are on vacation], I go into some detail." In great detail, he tells locations for gates, fences, roads, entrance roads, parking spaces, traffic flow, signs and more. Much of this work is underway, but he will wait until Godshalk returns before finalizing the plan because "you have given this matter careful thought for a long time, and you may have good reasons for changing some of the suggestions above." Ed suggests steel pipes, filled with concrete and painted white to channel drivers at "diverging roads." 

In a handwritten note at the top of page 1, Morton mentions that the Ritz has no connecting single rooms on the quiet side, so they might try the Stafford their next time. He requests that Godshalk ask if the Stafford has 2 single connecting rooms on a quiet side for September 7. Please bring a plan of the hotel also. They have stayed at the Savoy many times but it's not near the kind of shopping Mrs. Morton wants to do.
