Dear Peggy: — As per your request, in yesterday’s letter, for a suggestion of something new to serve you as an appetizer with cocktails, I will tell you about a “yummy” tasting morsel which was served here recently by a clever hostess who specializes in Swedish dishes— Canned button mushrooms marianated in sauterne, and chilled, before serving. Never have I tasted anything as delicious, and judging from the rapidity with which this special dish had to be replenished, I am not alone in my praise and appreciation of the unusual delicacy. Last Sunday at 1:15 o'clock Mrs. Oliver C. Hutaff broadcasted over our local radio station WMFD on “Present Day Fashions For Women.” Her talk was highly instructive and extremely interesting. What she had to say was short, snappy, and right to the point, as is invariably the case with Peggy. Someone showed rare good judgment in their i selection of our own charming, talented, stylish Peggy Hutaff to put i across to other women what the really well dressed Wilmington women will wear in the spring and summer of 1946, for Peggy KNOWS, and Peggy dresses flawlessly, in excellent taste, which, to our way of thinking, is in expensive simplicity.
