Description

Letter discussing a telephone conversation she had with Mildred Bliss regarding a house for the Director of the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden. Mrs. Bliss thought that her anonymous gift had made clear that the funds would be used to increase the Director's salary and provide him a house or rental to live in. Beatrix Farrand asks for a response from the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden Board on this decision on behalf of Mildred Bliss.

Written in upper left corner in pencil: "For Mrs. Bliss."
