Catalogue Note

A souvenir from the last days of the Merrie Monarch's reign.  This printed card was issued for a ball given 2 June 1890.  The order of dance lists fourteen dances, primarily waltzes, polkas, and Scottish dances.  The bearer of this particular card seems to have been a Hawaiian wallflower—only three dances were taken, and those all by the same partner.
