Description'Kennedy tells me that you undertake carpet-beating. If you like to let me have an estimate, for taking up, cleaning, & putting down the carpets throughout the rooms, it is possible I may be able to give you the annual job. But you must let me have the estimate this week, because if not accepted, I must send to an old carpet-beaters to get the carpets up in the course of next week'.
