21 June: Particulars for the Costume Tea, A Communication from Jonathan Warner

Ladies & gentlemen, my esteemed guests: 

Should you be planning to attend our costume tea, on 21st June from 11:00-3:00, please be assured we are assiduously attending to your every need & comfort. I have personally inspected the premises and am pleased to inform you that we are prepared to welcome you heartily to our home.

For those traveling a distance, I have set aside one of my best chambers for you to attend to your wardrobe and associated finery.

We will serve tea, hot & cold, and an assortment of tea cakes and breads.

My domestic staff will be available to provide tours of our home (and I must once again let you know that my smalt chamber is the envy of many.) They have placed chairs for your comfort inside, or, should we continue with such fine, fair weather, you may want to settle in the garden.

Unfortunately, the groomsman will be away in the Northern most part of the province so I regret that I cannot stable your horses or carriages. Frequently, your means of conveyance may find space in front of the house or at the Portsmouth Livery Company (aka the parking garage.)

Please contact my Factor, Jeffrey Hopper (day of event only) should you need assistance.

---Your humble servant,  Jonathan Warner

The Warner House
150 Daniel Street
Portsmouth, New Hampshire
