Post-hurricane post: The Wet and Dry Question

This just happened to be on my desk when I returned after the hurricane.
During the 1910s and 1920s, the S.D. Warren Company produced a number of small brochures and instructional booklets to promote its papermill. Many were designed by Boston artist W.A. Dwiggins (1880-1956), although not the one illustrated here. It is interesting that although trying to be helpful, Warren was the first American paper company to use wood fibers in their products. From wikipedia: "S. D. Warren Paper Mill is a small mill built on the Presumpscot River in the 1730s. . . . In 1867, Warren decided to add wood fibers with rags fibers for paper, making it the first mill in the United States to do so . . . By 1880, the mill produced 35,000 pounds of paper per day. After S. D. Warren's death in 1888, the mill continued to grow through the 20th century, employing close to 3,000 Westbrook residents."
