Re:   The William Murphy House at A.I. DuPont Children's Hospital in Wilmington, Delaware

Dear Board members,

          I wish to express my heartfelt concern about the possibility of Nemours demolishing the historic Murphy House which sits at the entrance to the AI DuPont Children's Hospital, where it has been for over 172 years.  This building is an important part of Delaware history and I would be dismayed if Nemours decided to demolish it instead of re-habilitating it or allowing the Delaware Greenways organization to rehab it.

         Please consider the civic course of action:  to invest in the Wilmington community rather than to remove one of the last vestiges of our past.  There are many good uses for this property.   You can contact me for further thoughts and ideas on this subject at:
