Letter from Beatrix Farrand, 1650 Orlando Road, San Marino, California to Paul J. Sachs, Dumbarton Oaks Collection, Harvard University, 3101 R Street, Georgetown, Washington, D.C., March 8, 1941 Digital
Scope and Contents
Typescript letter with handwritten signature from Beatrix Farrand to Paul Sachs in response to his letter (D:PJS 1941.02.20). Beatrix Farrand explains a delay in sending notes for their next meeting as her husband, Max Farrand, had recently retired. She suggests tentative dates for her next visit to Dumbarton Oaks. Heavily penciled "Jack" in the top left corner indicates that Paul Sachs may have wanted John Thacher to provide a response.
