Ignacy Jan Paderewski
The Black Lace Scarf on the Chair
R.F.D.I., Carmel, Monterey County
Dear Mr. Haiman,
Here is the lace scarf of which I spoke to you. Fortunately, I had sent it on from Washington.
It is, I believe, an example of what is popularly known as “Spanish Blonde”. Your lace expert will know.
Possibly, Mr. Paderewski brought it to his sister as a souvenir of one of his Spanish tours. Mrs. Strakacz may remember this; also, the date of its presentation.
It was given to me after Madame Wilkonska’s death.
I think it will add another personal note to the beautiful, most moving, Paderewski Room which you have created; and I am happy to be able to send it to you. Sincerely,
