BRIEFS. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 9 September 1897

BRIEFS. That old duchess at Mareeba is sadly out about her antique quilt. It happens old girl, that the win- ning quilt is a new one, made since last Show. It was quite true that the attendant 1 who was told to take Mrs D.'s quilt [ from the hall home (Johnny Italiano) i got hold , of the wrong one, and left the article made by his mistress, behind. Yes,' he unceremoniously huddled the intercstingfixing into an empty bajr and threw it into the spring-cart. When the mistake was noted in'Cairns next morning, a special messenger was sent to Lily Bank where it was found-still in the bottom of the cart. It was then brought into Cairns. Mrs Thingymabob, bless her old gnms, may feel better when she knows that the pattern was never even looked at-let alone copied. , Copied, indeed-why, a blind old black gin could beat it with one hand tied. There now. We are not an authority on nutters social, being old, decrepid and out of date. Under the circumstances we maj be pardoned for wondering if i...
