Damp sheets

“Few things are attended with more serious consequences than sleeping in damp linen. Persons are frequently assured that the sheets have been at a fire for many hours, but the question is what sort of fire and whether they have been turned so that every part has been exposed to the fire. The fear of creasing the linen, we know, prevents many from unfolding it, so as to be what we consider sufficiently aired; but health is more important than appearances. With gentleness, there need to be no fear of want of neatness.”

Enquire Within upon Everything (1926), Herbert Jenkins, London, p.346
