Description

Letter comments that all the arrangements are made for Lewis L. Delafield's and Ellis Russell's visit to Reef Point, Bar Harbor, Maine.

She mentions that there is "still an immense amount of cataloguing and arranging to do, but we are plugging along with it ...." Beatrix Farrand received encouragement for her efforts from a neighbor who is working to establish an educational program at Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia.

It mentions Beatrix Farrand and Clementine Walter will be traveling to Canada for an eight day holiday of rest.

Written on Beatrix Farrand's letterhead and hand signed "Trix."
