Inside Poem

If you should wish to
learn your fate
Then meet the goblins prompt
at eight
Come dressed from head
to toe in white
And bring a Jack o Lantern light.

Auditorium, Oct. 30, 1915

Pearl was a senior at Noble High School in the fall of 1915. If this wasn’t a school party (Noble’s 1910 total population was 403!), then the school auditorium was likely the gathering place for a fun evening with friends.

My favorite part of this invitation is the cute little hand drawn owl on the front. I wonder how many people attended this party? I imagine Pearl did, as she kept the invitation for so many years afterwards.
