26 November 1957
Thank you for your letter of 21 November regarding the carpet.
After further consideration, we have now determined that the most
appropriate solution would be to cover only part of the floor of the Meditation
Room with a carpet, that is, the entrance and the area up to the barrier
which has been reserved for the public. We intend to keep the slate floor
in the rest of the space as it is. The surface to be covered by the carpet
is indicated in the attached floor plan, in which this area has been described
in detail and marked with red lines. For the sake of precision, the dimensions
have also been given in centimetres. A small memo with some weaving instructions
(figures 3 and 4) is also enclosed. As previously agreed, the border of
the carpet should follow the walls and the curve along the barrier.
I should therefore be grateful if you would contact Handarbetets
Vänner [the Friends of Handicraft] to confirm the order as above,
and ask them to complete the work as soon as possible.
Payment for the part of the carpet already delivered will be made
to them soonest according to their wishes.
Mr. Per Lind, Director
Foreign Ministry Stockholm
