Description

Letter discusses permission to have 5000 picture postcards similar to those for Reef Point Gardens, made for each of the following at Dumbarton Oaks: the view of the front door from the Southeast lawn, the Rose Garden, the Herbaceous Garden or Border, and the Lovers' Lane Pool. Beatrix Farrand also asks Anne Sweeney for a report on various questions she has about Dumbarton Oaks.

Beatrix shares that she has a print fund for the Catalogue House with funding from Mildred Bliss and a balance in the Harvard Book Fund that can be used if Anne Sweeney wants to purchase prints.

Comments that Mr. [Philip] "Lucking's [from Casa Dorinda] death was just what one would have want for oneself." He died of a heart attack at Kalman's Nursery.

Typewritten on Beatrix Farrand's Valley Club of Monecito letterhead and hand signed by her.

Mentions Clementine Walter can sympathize with Anne Sweeney with regard to tooth problems.

Title created by cataloger.
