Senator Harlan Entertains At His Home – July 1894.
Hon. James Harlan again tendered the hospitalities of his home to a small party of friends for lunch on Sunday, and it is needless to say that the gathering of these friends was a social treat. The senator possesses that rare tact in selecting his guests, those who are congenial, one with another, and remembers in his greetings what will be the most likely to put each individual in good humor with himself, and ready to draw out the best in others. ‘Tis a rare charm, and largely the exponent of a good heart in making each guest feel their welcome and thoroughly at their ease, one with another. During lunch guests were in agreeable proximity, and the enjoyment of all was afterwards fully secured in the social intercourse while seated in the cool comfortable parlor. The menu was all that could be desired, deftly and promptly served. Mr. Harlan was gracefully and ably assisted by Mrs. Northrup and Mrs. Anderson. Those present were Mr. and Mrs. Beckwith, Mr. and Mrs. Ambler, Mr. and Mrs. Withrow, Mr. and Mrs. Ketcham, Mr. and Mrs. Stafford and Mr. and Mrs. McAdam.
