The SMARTEST FASHIONS OF
k@ Q@ck Strikes
Another new year! Don't they
go fast, now that we are staid and
iear! I'm not nearly so staid and
t )lemn as that myself! Why, I'm writing
y m in bed—at 9 o'clock—after a most fas
cinating New Year's eve.
We went to Cousin Mary's, as I told you
we would, and had our "auld lang syne" sup
per in their perfectly gorgeous dining room.
Just at 12 we stood up, in the glow of the
barberry candles, joined hands in the proper
double line and sang that fine old Scotch song
till the old oak rafters rang. All-we missed
was you, sister dear.
Cousin Mary was stunning looking, ail
ack and white, with the golden hair all
Everetta have, you know. I watched her
as she beamed proudly on that ridiculously
young husband of hers and on her two big
children, and I could hardly believe she was
mother's cousin and not ours.
Just think! Will is old enough to have
lost his heart quite wildly over a fair maiden.
Imagine Cousin Mary as a mother-in-law!
The lady's name is Rosalie Shields, and she
is bewilderingly pretty. She was in corn
color chiffon over satin, the tunic edged with
old blue embroidery, and lace ruffles on the
sleeves. She shone even by the lovely Mrs.
Beverly (that friend of Stella's), who was
ihere with her husband.
Jane Beverly was in rose-colored messa
line, the bertha pleated over a lace yoke and
the high, uneven girdle half concealing a bib
effret f gold embroidery. There was a fish
tail tunic, each end being finished by a broad
Stella was in royal blue silk cashmere:
a very pretty, girlish frock, with braid em
broidery and a shirred net yoke, gathered
on a cord.
There were lots more of us—Nan ir
bright yellow and yours truly in her old wis
taria gown, for instance —but this is enoug
for you, you long-suffering sister.
My love to the kiddy.
