Note for William Randolph Hearst, March 4, 1938


March 4, 1938 Dear Mr. Hearst: "Slip covers" are practical when of cretonne, linen, etc., but they are not practical for materials of silk, heavy wools, etc. The "saving" is in being able to send the cover as a whole to the dry-cleaners. I think your idea of buying enough extra material to replace too soied portions of a fixed upholstery is a very good one, and in the end the most practical, as slip covers look shabby after a very few cleanings. Attached to and from Mr. Hearst & returned to him
