CALLS - The Social Phase of New Year's Day.
30 December 1882
Brooklyn Union Argus

New Year's Day in the social aspect promises to be more generally
observed than usual of late years, providing the weather is propitious.
The caterers have had more orders for the arrangement of tables, and the
florists have been busier with decoration for the reception parlor than they
have been in some years past.  Most every lady who opens her house to
callers on the 1st of January will receive in full dress attire, and to many
of the houses gas will be burned all day for the purpose of showing off
the toilets to the best advantage and of giving the scene more striking
effect.  In the evening, at the houses where a number of young people
receive, parties will be given.  Gentlemen who pride themselves on
etiquette will not begin calling until noon, and then they will not be foolish
as to don their full dress suits, but wear either Prince Albert coats or neat
cutaways.  Pen-tailed coats are made for evening and their use out of place
only furnishes amusement for the giddy girls of fashion.

The names of some of Brooklyn's prominent citizens and fair ladies who
will receive callers on Monday are given below:

MAYOR LOW will receive calls at his office, City Hall, from 10 A.M. to 12 M.

receive friends at Raymond Street Jail between the hours of 10 A.M. and

will not be opened to callers, but COLONEL STEGMAN will be happy to
receive all his friends at the jail.
