From the July 4, 1907 Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), page 4:
A Pleasant Evening.
The heavy storm which passed over this vicinity last Saturday evening did not retard the young people from the ice-cream supper held at the pleasant home of Charles Pfeiffer west of this city.
After the rain ceased Mrs. Pfeiffer gave up all hope of having any one to eat up the great supply of ice-cream they had prepared, and in talking to some friends over the phone said they would not have the social. But about eight-thirty o’clock several buggies laden with jolly young people were driven up to the house. It was then Mrs. Pfeiffer realized her invited guests were not to be out done by unpleasant weather.
About forty young folks were ushered into the parlors, where pleasant games together with good music made the evening very pleasant. About ten a call for supper was hears and for an hour and a half the ice-cream had to suffer.
At a late hour all departed for their homes thanking their hostess for a very pleasant evening.
