1 letter and envelope from Louise Ogawa to Clara Breed.

Dear Miss Breed,/Will you please buy for me if you are not busy 1 pullover sweater. My bust measurement is 30. I would like beige in color--if not available old rose or something that will match maroon. If pullover sweater is not available anything that appeals to you will do--if it is a coat sweater navy blue, red, beige. In a pullover sweater a "v" neck or a round neck is fine. I am enclosing $4.25 hoping it is enough./May I suggest a few stores--you do not have to buy there--please use your own judgement. Maybe you know better places to buy./Chenkins/Walkers/Lions}/Marstons} maybe too expensive????/Thank you a million times for the nice gifts!!! Hoping I am not causing you too much trouble. If I am please just return the money for I will indeed understand./Most sincerely,/Louise Ogawa
