June 21st, 1906 at 11:00 p.m. — Neptune Casino Grand Ballroom
Four hours into the night and the Credwell girls had practically fallen asleep where they sat. The night did not improve despite their best wishes. No young men asked them to dance, and none of their friends arrived. For Mary, at least, the night was the most boring she had experienced in years. The sounds from the orchestra continued, but even they seemed to be growing weary. Food had been served late, at eight o’clock, and it was so extravagant that neither of the Credwell girls enjoyed it. Sautéed lobsters with caviar and shrimp basted in a special sea water blend. Even some of the adults seemed overwhelmed and stuck to appetizers.
