May 4-6, 1910 Bess & Kathy Throw A Party
Wednesday May 4, 1910
Kathy up and got things ready for the house & I worked in the yard.
Thursday May 5, 1910
Worked in the back yard and helped decorate the house for the Kimono shower.
Friday May 6, 1910
Went to gym and B & K gave Una a Kimono shower. The house was decorated like Japan & all of the girls wore kimonos.
It was a pretty party.
Holy Cow. HOLY COW!!! Oh I bet it was a pretty party. Can't you just see all of those turn of the century beauties all decked out in kimonos with paper fans and lanterns. I bet there was punch. Did you notice that Clara was invited to the shower as well?? It also confirms that Kathy is Kathy Witham, Bess's sister.
Can I just ask you, is anyone else out there thinking that I should hire myself out to trace people's ancestors.... I swear, this is better than my own tree at this point. I do have a ton of people on mine but they are not yet so life-like. (and of course I don't have any of their diaries)
This is probably one of my favorite finds to date. This was published in the Syracuse Register Post on May 7, 1910 in the society page.
I love how in the diary he talks about getting ready for the shower for the days proceeding.
This is seriously like a big delicious treat for me....
