Dear Mariel1;

please send mother4 5 1/2 yards of heavy mohair braid as near this sample in color as possible. If you can't get it near this shade send a rich golden brown. I will be up to Lincoln3 myself tomorrow, but we are in an awful rush for this and if you send it it will get hear sooner. But please don't go to a lot of trouble about it, Mariel.

Yours in Haste Willa.
