Description

Letter informs Beatrix Farrand that her letter of July 9, 1947 was received.

She wants to talk over the replacement of materials for the Catalogue House, the future Garden Information Center, and book purchases. When Anne Sweeney arrives in Boston after her visit at Reef Point, she would like to see Harvard University buildings, library and the famous Agassiz flowers, a collection of glass flowers.
