Once the burlap was removed from the roll-top slats, a newspaper dated July 1, 1917 was found underneath, perhaps having once been a repair itself? Should we remove the newspaper as well? Is there any value in preserving it as it is? I read the comments about using duck cloth, etc. Not sure how I should proceed with my desk. Have never had it appraised. Thank you.
