Carpet from the Catskill Mountain House C. 1900.

Donated by Mrs. R. Kingsland Hay, New York, 1989.

“Dear Justine –

Is this what you were interested in? Carpet from the Mountain House! I was able to salvage enough for 6 dining room chair seats, plus this piece. The rest was too badly worn or stained to use for anything. I think it is very handsome. I also have sentiment for it because my New York grandmother spent her summers there for many years. later she became a widow and loved the place! Love to you & Hillard. Alice H.”
