1800s Advice and Etiquette for Ladies

An Afternoon Tea - A card should be left for or sent to each lady receiving. No after call is necessary, as one"s appearance at the tea is a call. IF there is quite a crowd it is perfectly proper to depart without saying good-by to the hostess or the leadies receiving at any formal function. It is not customary to annouce guests at an afternoon tea. The ladies receiving shake hands with each guest.
