Gordon Is Having a Party


Gordon is going to have a party
Friday, May 31st 1912
At 420 E. Sixth Street
From 3 to 5 o'clock
You are cordially invited

This invitation was sent to my mother's uncle George when he was eight years old.

I found it at Mom's house in a box of old stuff a couple of years ago. I don't know why or how it survived more than 100 years. I liked it, so I framed it, and it now sits in my office.

I'm pretty sure it was a terrific party.
