Thursday, July 5, l900
MR. and MRS. THURMAN CRAIG entertained Tuesday evening in honor of their daughter GERTRUDE's twentieth birthday. The evening was spent very pleasantly on the lawn, which was lighted by Japanese lanterns, croquet being the favorite game. The refreshments were served to the l2 guests in the parlors. They consisted of sandwiches, deviled eggs, iced tea, cake, orange sherbet, ice cream and fruit. After supper MISS PEARL NORMAN sang, and MISS MYRTA HOWELL recited her famous "Sermon of Long Ago," both of which received hearty applause.
MISS GERTIE is a charming young lady and her friends wish for her many more happy birthdays.
