The Minister's Wife's New Bonnet
(1922)

The following article about an upcoming comedy appeared in the 09 March 1922 Weekly Guide.
A Sunday School Convention is to take place in the city. The minister's wife is selected as the local delegate. Her bonnet being rather out of date, she is in a quandry what to do.

The sewing circle comes to her assistance. Several members trim hats and each expects the minister's wife to wear her creation.

You will see this perplexing situation solved on Friday, March 9th at 8 p.m. in St. Paul's S.S. Hall.
(Entrance East Door.)
