Mak­ing nap­kins snappy

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

HOW on earth Les­lie Ged­des-brown man­aged to take 11∕2 hours to laun­der a dou­ble-damask din­ner nap­kin is beyond my be­lief (Spec­ta­tor, April 5). Each one takes me only a few min­utes, al­though ad­mit­tedly, in my pre-monas­tic days, I was trained by a laun­dry maid at Warter Pri­ory in East York­shire, who was re­quired to laun­der 1,000 nap­kins a week. She lost her job when the house­keeper com­plained that the bows on the tapes used to tie them weren’t tidy enough—she an­swered that she was a laun­dry maid, not a milliner.
