Description'Can you send two men here on Wednesday, May 2nd at 6 p.m. precisely to put down carpets on stairs and in passages for our Soiree to be held the same evening? They should not come before 6 as the Press View will not be over until that time, and the carpets would get soiled; but do not let them come, as they did last year, on the next morning. HR'.
