Excerpt from Message

San Francisco College for Women. Rare book rooms. Lone Mountain. This gives a good idea of the cases Reverend Mother designed and had made for housing our rare manuscripts. We have six of them. The carved wood doors fold back over the drawers which are not visible there. On top are also rare manuscripts. The walls & ceiling are in silver metal leaf, stenciled (the walls) with robins egg blue. The rug (a gift) is a real Aubusson tapestry rug – pastel shades. The wood is dark. Leather – robin’s egg blue – with large brass headed nails. The book of [illegible] pictures is so big and heavy – 2 have to carry it. We have hundreds [illegible].
