This curiosity found in the Times library is an invitation to a Christmas Festival and Married Men’s Ball to be held at 7 o’clock Christmas evening in 1855 at Washington Hall in Watertown. Despite the event’s name, the Committee of Invitation is divided into married and single categories. This event does not seem to have been for men only, however; the fine print at the bottom notes that ‘carriages will be in attendance for ladies at half past six.’ Music was to be provided by Reed’s Quadrille Band.
