This remarkable picture by Virginia inspired me to write to her. I suggested that she come over to our house to paint her pattern on our walls as I have always dreamed of wallpaper without repeats. My family was, for a while, in the business of supplying wallpapers and I saw so many of them, I became totally immune to their charm. My mother also supplied draperies and furniture covering. I drive my wife half crazy with the very strong prejudices that have taken root in me from the influence of that trade.

Intriguing fact about your family and the wallpaper business. Cool drawing. It would be great wallpaper, wouldn't it?
