White cotton sheet from the Lacouague family's ranch in San Juan Capistrano, California. A white tag on the sheet is embroidered on one side with yellow thread: "Harmony House." The other side of the tag is embroidered with black thread: "All Cotton Finest Combed Percale , Twin - 72 x 108 inch, Size Before Hemming, Sears, Roebuck & Co., U.S.A.. Simpsons - Sears, Ltd." The end with the tag has a narrow hemmed edge; the opposite end has a wider hemmed edge. Portions of the sheet are light blue, a result of the use of bluing.
