Dear Mamma:
It has been a long time since
I wrote you, but it came very
near being a still longer time.
I have had a very heavy cold
and was fortunate to escape
that terrible influenza.
One of the things that wor
ried me while I was ill was the
fact that I was missing a won
derful sale of Oriental and
domestic rugs at Wanamuk
er's. I did so want to get some
new domestic rugs for our new
Imagine my delight on Sat
urday, when I was able to" go
in town, to find that there- was
still a large assortment of the
very things I wanted. And at
the most surprising prices!
During my shopping days,
before we got the house, I had
become quite discouraged over
the advanced prices of rugs.
Almost evrrvtmrn T wnnted
was two or three tirries what
Henry and I had paid for sim
ilar rugs when we were mar
ried. I told Henry he'd have
to get some pnint and camou
flage the bare floors.
But at Wanamaker's I found
beautiful rugs in the newest
patterns at prices only a little
higher than they used to be.
For the living room I got an
exquisite 9x12 it. .Wilton rug
in Oriental design and color
ing for $87.50. And another
beautiful 9x12 ft. Wilton, not
quite so fine, for the dining
room. That was $69.50.
For our bedroom I got an
Axminstcr rug because I like
the soft, rich feel of it under
foot. That also was 9x12 ft
and was $28.50.
Then I got a 3x6 ft. bath
room rug for $4.25 and two
small Wilton rugs, one 27x54
in., for $5, and the other 36x63
in., for $12.
For $206.75 I got all the
new rugs we needed and
beauties at that. And do you
know how much I saved on
the lot? $102,751 Wasn't that
perfectly splendid? I went
straight down to the Liberty
Bond booth and subscribed to
another $100 bond.
Your loving daughter,
P. S. If you think Philadel
