Hillary Rodham Clinton’s mixture of personal and work email once resulted in a reply to a crashed drone story with inquiries about home decorations.

Files obtained by The Associated Press show that Mrs. Clinton accidentally sent adviser Huma Abedin questions about the attractiveness of shelving units in response to a drone crash in Pakistan.

“I like the idea of these. How high are they? What would the bench be made of? And I’d prefer two shelves or attractive boxes/baskets/ conmtainers (sic) on one. What do you think?” Mrs. Clinton wrote, AP reported Tuesday.

When Mrs. Abedin then asked if she meant to send the e-mail, Mrs. Clinton replied “No-sorry! Also, pls let me know if you got a reply from my ipad. I’m not sure replies go thru,” AP reported.

The correspondence was released to AP as part of a Freedom of Information Act request filed in 2013. The news service sought all correspondence between Mrs. Clinton and senior advisers over a four-year period relating to drone strikes and U.S. surveillance programs overseas.
