Mister Ron's Basement #765

Our Monday book serialization is George Ade's 1903 collection, 'In Babel -- Stories of Chicago.'

The stories in this book range from the hysterically funny to the pathetically sad. Altogether, they paint a fascinating portrait of turn-of-the-last-century Chicago.

In today's chapter, Ade presents the story of a Garden Party in a rapidly devolving neighborhood. It's pretty funny. The tale is called 'The Barclay Lawn Party.'

Time: approx eleven and a half minutes
