Letter from C. E. Godshalk to Sterling Morton sharing his limited knowledge of the Parkway cable. They had two of them installed at the Arboretum in 1935 and have had no problems with them. He suggests talking to someone in purchasing at the Morton Salt Company. Godshalk doesn't believe a wood deck would complement Morton's house. He believes a stone patio would work better and gives advice on how it could be constructed. He assures Morton that Arboretum staff would be pleased if Morton showed the slides of his recent trip in the new auditorium. He recently came across some 16 mm film Morton's father and Mrs. Morton took on some of their trips. He asks Morton if he would like Godshalk to ship it to him. Godshalk believes parts of these films may be cut and used in a film about the history of the Arboretum. He updates him on the progress of work being done around the Arboretum. It looks like the new Toll Road will be on the south side of the Arboretum.
