Marsha and I were speaking about the progress in the furnishing
plans at de Mesa and I remembered that some time ago we had
discussed placing shutters on the east window of the upstairs

The primary reason for the shutters is to protect the furnishing
from sun damage. I am very worried about sun damage to the rug in
the parlor. Shutters would have been on the original house to
protect from storms, climate-control, etc. Style of the shutters
would be fixed louver. In all likelihood we would rarely open the
shutters once installed.

For the windows on the first floor south wall (dining room), UV
film could be used to protect the furniture. Sun damage has
already occurred to the side board (a loan from Lightner). The
shutters on these windows must be open in order for there to be
any light in that room.

I believe that our maintenance crew could install the UV film.
If you could add to your long list of projects the construction
of shutters tor that window and the Installation ot UV film, it
would be appreciated.
