Description
Letter from C. E. Godshalk to Sterling Morton saying they are having a cold, snowy winter. The cold weather has brought more birds farther south, including evening grosbeaks, to use his feeders, in addition to the usual winter birds. He shared his ideas about building the terrace and handling the drainage. He discusses the demolition of houses on Arboretum grounds and the possible demolition of another one. Arnold Berg's comments to Mrs. Naser are attached to the enclosed picture; Berg is painting this winter. Godshalk learned that the Garfield King family is moving to Hawaii. Godshalk wonders if he is giving up his position with the Morton Salt Company and as a trustee of the Arboretum. All the trees have been moved at Arbor Lake. He offers Morton advice about taking photographs indoors without using the flash, enclosing two slides as examples.
