Invitation to tea

Handwritten and -drawn invitation to a meeting of the Maine Club Girls, offering tea (from which a juxtaposed tea napkin on the same page -- item 24-05 -- may be a souvenir). The name "Ruth Gates" is written on the reverse side. Transcription: "The Maine Club Girls are going to meet / Next Wednesday, at four, and have a treat / In North Hall Parlor, - a little tea / But that's not the treat, I hope you see / The treat's the pleasure of seeing you. / Now please don't forget it - please come, do!"

As the items concerning Ruth Dorcas Gates’ social activities and sports attendance all date to the years 1923 to 1925, and it is unknown whether the copyright were renewed in the cases in which still existing organizations are involved (Y.W.C.A., Yale University Football, etc.), it is assumed that materials of still existing organizations are under copyright unless known otherwise. The material may still be accessed strictly for pedagogical use. Undated materials are presumed to be from the year 1925 or earlier, as the scrapbook’s latest material dates from that time.
