Chap Record: Behold herein, all nice and neat, a record of the men I meet.
A charming turn of the century book for recording ones impressions of chaps, the previous owner has filled out 13 pages, representing over 50 chaps. I suspect she transferred some chaps from a previous record, as the dates run from 1899 to 1906 and I don’t think this was published until around 1904ish. In any case, early on she is having the most luck on the Jersey Shore, though later on, Peggy’s house is the hot spot.
Only five of the twelve notable chaps spots have been filled (most hopeless, anyone?) including Robert Breck Steele (best name).
William Hayward comes out alright, but what of the mysterious Arno Bruhun who was last seen at Grand Central Station in February 1905?
James Dawson is very cute and Irish, but is he in love with Fritzie Mehl? Charlies Baeder, once deemed very cute, has been downgraded to nervey. I wouldn’t want to speculate as to what you’ve have to do to precipitate a tumble like that.
Conceited or something. Ha!
Harold Hesse, the one I love the best of all…but married (in pencil).
Completely charming and just a little heart breaking, all at once.
