Alice Maud Chase in Portsmouth - 25 December, 1889, at night

from The memoirs of Alice Maud Chase, pages 24-25:

That Christmas was one of the happiest I have ever known. It fell on a Sunday […] Everything was perfect. After dinner we sat by the fire and rested and let the parents rest, and after tea we clustered round the piano and sang hymns and carols until bedtime.
