95 Sloane Street. Dearest Mother. I asked Susan about her cleaner, Achille Serre, and got his address. She says sometimes the pleating stays and sometimes it doesn't, and no one can tell what it will do. But your chiffon is so rubbed and drawn, I don't think really it's worth cleaning. Woolland will match you the shade and accordion pleat it for you if you like. That wd be rather expensive as it takes so much chiffon, but I think it would be better.
I dine with Lisa tonight. Your affectionate daughter Gertrude.
