And could you order for me 6 place settings—knife, fork, spoon, soup spoon, butter knife & have them sent & billed to me here…P. S. Will you make sure the Bueb painting at Chatsworth which Mrs. K [Rose Kennedy] had sent from our house at the Cape to Palm Beach, is brought back to us when Dave drives up next spring!!! Thanks for your sweet letter about the blouse—you deserve a carload of them.” In fine condition, with a trivial fingerprint to the upper border.
