(Johann Gottfried)] Grohmann; and Observations on modern gardening by [Horace] Walpole-[Thomas] Whately) being sent to Dumbarton Oaks and asks Anne Sweeney to arrange for their care upon arrival.

Beatrix Farrand mentions she would rather not keep them at Reef Point, Bar Harbor, Maine as there has been a fire in the neighborhood, and she doesn't want "Dumbarton Oaks books burned in a second one." Beatrix Farrand is looking forward to Anne Sweeney's visit after Labor Day and thank's Anne Sweeney for the photograph of Heracleum Mantegazzianum.
