Mrs. Christine Terhune Herrick, the authority on all delicate feasting, stands sponsor for a new blend of sandwich that is a delicious addition to these acceptable morsels. A fairly thin slice of Boston brown broad is halved, each piece is spread lightly with cream cheese, cut in two pieces, and a crisp bit of lettuce previously dipped in French dressing put between the two quarters. Try it at your 5 o'clock, with chocolate or Russian tea, and test for yourself its delectability. — New York Times.
An Old Song
"The Last Rose of Summer," one of Patti's favorite songs, was the work of Thomas Moore. The melody is a very ancient Irish tune, formerly known as "The Groves of Blarney." This tune has been found in collections of Irish music at least 100 years old.
