Charles Lindbergh’s trip to Japan 1931: Dinner Party 3

This is my last post about the Lindbergh party. In addition to the items mentioned in my last two posts, I have an envelope addressed to a person who attended the party:

Sent on 8/26/1931 via express mail. Also a seating chart:

On the reverse of this is an order of the proceedings written in Japanese. Finally, 2 more documents complete the group. One is a sheet that must have come with the invitation, as it lists the price and the way to respond to the invitation. (Male guests had to pay 10 yen and females 5 yen.) There was also a notice stating that the dining room was full and that members who want to take part in the dinner had to sit in a separate room. That must have been disappointing, since the whole point of the dinner was to see and hear the famous Charles Lindbergh.

I hope you have been interested in this little set I found.
