⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Meta1:

This the kind of advertising work Edith5 does. The text and sketch are both hers. It's very interesting work and requires a great knowledge of types and printing—and of the dullness of the average human mind.


I thought you might like to know what kind of advertising. Formerly she worked on the Eastman Kodak account, but Eastman is shut off by the War.
