Letter

Scope and Content

Letter to John [Ormrod, a member of the Bolton Whitman group and a friend of Sixsmith] from Anne Traubel [widow of Horace, Whitman's close friend and admirer]. Refers to: an inaccurate article about the weaving of Paisley shawls; her family background and her grandfather's emigration from Scotland to America. She asks about a fabric called 'oiled chintz' which her grandfather took to America, and suggests that John pass her query on to Charlie Sixsmith if he cannot answer it himself.

With enclosure: a cutting from The Christian Science Monitor about woven shawls.

Includes envelope.
