The following unidentified newspaper article (ca. 1904) was found in a scrapbook owned by Betty Burton of Lowell:
A party was given by Miss Carrie Kobelin in her parlor last Thursday evening. Progressive flinch was played and the Misses Mayme Nichols and Nellie Castle were the prize winners. There was a tie for the honor prize between Miss Mayme Nichols and Miss Cora Pattee which resulted in Miss Nichols as winner of a beautiful china cup and saucer. After dainty refreshments, other games, recreations and music were enjoyed. The merry-makers returned to their homes at a late hour.
