This 1892 invitation, addressed to my husband's great-grandparents and great-great aunts, was found in the papers of Maria Lee Palmer Smith, his great-grandmother. Their home on East Second Street had belonged to their elder brother, Dr. Charles Smith. Following Charles' death in 1888, Francis, Maria Lee lived there with his sisters Kate and Mary. Sometime after the last Smith sibling died in 1908, Maria Lee sold the house.
I found the wording quaint and unusual - "begs your co-operation in the celebration..." The scale is difficult to gauge in the photographs, but the card and envelope are very small, only slightly larger than a standard business card.
