Description

Letter confirming Beatrix Farrand's planned arrival to Washington, D.C. on January 16, working at Dumbarton Oaks on January 17. She offers suggestions for her and John Thacher to discuss, such as how Harvard University's acceptance of Dumbarton Oaks will affect the gardens and their future plantings. She also suggests the Catalog House continue to be developed as an educational asset to the institution and the public.

Beatrix Farrand mentions sending a note to James Bryce, asking him to prepare notes for the meeting all three will have. She also expresses a wish to know what the budget is for Dumbarton Oaks that the Harvard Committee has agreed upon. She ends the letter with a postscript, acknowledging the receipt of John Thacher's letter (D:JT 1941.01.02) and specifying times of her arrival and departure to and from Washington, D.C.
