Description
Letter from Sterling Morton to C. E. Godshalk suggesting that the new trustee, Mr. Baker, could be of substantial help with the attempt to prevent the industrialization of DuPage County. If the Arboretum shouldn't contribute directly to the committee, he would be willing to join with Mrs. Cudahy in making a personal contribution to the defense fund. He thought it was interesting Godshalk was getting good use of the chain saw. Morton hired a man to remove six big eucalyptus trees, and he used a chain saw to do so. It's been very dry in California, and there are water restrictions. Luckily Morton has a well that yields enough water to keep things going including his new plantings. He believes he will lose some of the older trees.
