Notes
Content: Title from folder.
Content: Written on border: "Oct. 2, 1897" "Elastic ribbed union suits are complete undergarments, covering the entire body like an additional skin. Perfectly elastic, fitting like a glove, but softly and without pressure. No buttons down the front. Made for men, women, and young people. Most convenient to put on or off, being entered at the top and drawn on like trousers. With no other kind of underwear can ladies obtain such perfect fit for dresses or wear comfortably so small a corset. Oneita Knitting Mills, dept. C. C. Office : no. 1 Greene St., N.Y."
