Letter from Julia Morgan to William Randolph Hearst, August 13th, 1931

Julia Morgan   1931-08-13  

August 13th, 1931 Dear Mr. Hearst: The raising and placing of the structural steel for the new Gothic Study space floor over the twin's room was accomplished last week, and the concrete roof is all off the main part of the study and the walls almost ready to receive the new trusses. The Gothic Baths and stairways over them are stripped and we go onto finishing these right away. We found a marble I think you will like for the Gothic baths, but am only putting in the new basin slabs of it. It is obviously impossible to put marble in the eight or ten new baths at this time so I am plastering all baths in such a way that the marble can be put in later without disturbing the plaster. Monday there was an immense rainbow over the Casa Grande, followed by sharp showers. No harm done, but a great relief felt when they ended. Yours very truly,
