Sketch Book of the Inter-State Exposition, Chicago free pdf Excerpt from Sketch Book of the Inter-State Exposition, Chicago: Wednesday, Sept- 5, to Saturday, Oct- 20, Inclusive "The exposition!" exclaimed Grace, "certainly we must go! Why, indeed, it is the positive duty of all Chicagoans to go 'early and often' as you men say about voting. I think it is an almost unpardonable sin for anybody in Chicago to fail to visit our Exposition, and every one says this is to be the greatest and best display of all." Grace is, you perceive, a true daughter of the Garden City, a perfect little stalwart in her admiration of our glorious, enterprising, and only Chicago. Her expressive outburst was so genuine and so unexpected, that for a moment Guy was quite speechless, and he could only stare at the fair enthusiast in mute amazement, mingled with a certain admiration. "Well," he rejoined, as he regained his usual admirable composure- "Well, then it is all settled that we are to attend there to-morrow and devote the entire day to revelling in the wonders of genius and triumphs of art gathered in that temple of industry - our pet pride, the great Exposition Building, eh! O! by-the-by, I met Don this afternoon and invited him to come around bright and early in the morning and assist us on one of your tempting breakfasts. You see, I knew that would fetch him right on time and no mistake, for he is such an epicure, and you should just hear him once! how he does boast to the fellows about your cooking- the 'perfection of artistic feeding, ' he expresses it. And then, after the alluring breakfast, we will proceed to organize ourselves into a compact excursion party for a day at the 'greatest and only' Exposition. There now!" In his method for securing a man right on time, Guy was quite correct. A man may forget the hour agreed for a business engagement, and be provokingly negligent in the matter of keeping appointments, but invite him to a grand banquet, or a dainty breakfast, and he will almost surely be on time. Don appeared just as Guy predicted, and soon they were merrily discussing the appetizing breakfast and their vivid anticipations of a day of pleasure. But possibly you have never yet met any of our little party who are so eagerly planning to spend a day with you in rambling amid the countless attractions and wonders displayed in the great Exposition, so I will introduce them as they are enjoying their breakfast. Guy and his charming young wife, Grace, are in their own home, a cosy cottage in the environs of the city, a congenial neighborhood, possessing all the advantages and comforts of both city and country, with none of the petty annoyances frequently incidental in each. He is an attache of a great publishing house down town, and the Exposition is to him a recreation and an occupation. Don is an artist, a confirmed bachelor in good standing, and the particularly intimate friend of the cosy cottagers, and he is a prime favorite with everybody who knew him, one of the sort referred to by his fellow chums as "a good fellow," and by his lady friends as "ever so nice." Don is quite indispensable on a holiday excursion like this. All three are thorough Chicagoans of the most loyal order, and their creed is, "Chicago is Chicago, it is great, yea, verily, and there is none other like unto it, Selah! Marry, go to!" Anything having a semblance of being in any degree a Chicago specialty is certain of their unquestioning admiration, hence their enthusiastic interest in our Exposition. The indispensable, social bond being thus duly cemented after the unconventional manner quite usual among congenial spirits meeting in unexpected places, where each and all are on pleasure and recreation bent, now we - that is, we mean our little party and the reader - will at once waive all further formalities and become mutually confidential, and share with each other our confidences and opinions about what we shall see and hear in our holiday ramb
