An invitation to a couple’s house by the bathtub, 1925

Richard keeps a photo of it on his desk--so beautiful with the sun setting in the background!

Dear Agnes and Jonathan,

Cancel any plans you have for this weekend, because you must, simply must join us at the bathtub house this weekend. Richard has got it all fixed up, and we’ll have such a lovely time! We’ll drive up to Connecticut on Friday afternoon and head straight for the bathtub. There’s bubble bath, and rubber duckies, and tiny toy boats we can play with until it gets dark. Richard will heat up the grill in the evening and we’ll eat steaks with our fingers and burn smores over the fire. Then on Saturday, we’ll spend the whole day by the bathtub, going for individual dips, messing around with the temperature, and washing our hair until our fingers are like prunes! Sunday, I’ll make pancakes before we drive back to the city.

Now do say you’ll come, won’t you? The tub is so lovely this time of year.

Xoxo,

Mary
