I found this at an estate sale this weekend. It is a handwritten letter that was inside an envelope pasted in a scrap book. It contained a tiny square of woven black wool and two pressed flowers.
Dear Mr. Raines,
My name is Marion Briarley. I work for Samuel Martin, ltd, here in Leeds, and I am sending you a sample of the suiting which is made in the Grampian Hills of Scotland. It is hardy, tough, and will give you long honest wear - try and tear this sample.
I hope you will buy your next suit and topcoat at our Seattle store, 4th at Union, Douglas Building, Mezzanine Floor.
I thank you Sir
PS I am sending you a little primrose, England's first Spring flower.
Everything about this is right. How could Mr. Raines resist?
