Editor's Note: I bet the parade was awesome. Too bad Allen was in school but he doesn't show regret. However, in 1898, Allen seems a bit let down by not getting an invite to the Bunce's. I'm as surprised as he was. My guess is it was a very specific party perhaps for family only and clearly not a social event. Who knows? I'm struggling right now with who to invite to my child's b'day party. Do I make it intimate or include the whole class? We're not at the age yet where we can only select real mates in the classroom because feelings will be hurt. But I digress...parties can cause hurt feelings whatever your age.
