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
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,
