Welcome to letter D and to this year’s Theme:
The Glories of Tea With Stepheny
A hotel with a literary connection interests me. I’m glad the O. Henry Hotel was recreated in Greensboro after the original was raised. The O. Henry is named after American writer and Greensboro native William Sydney Porter, whose pen name was O. Henry. The original Hotel was built in downtown Greensboro in 1919 ‘A lot of famous writers,’ said one guest, ‘have houses they once occupied preserved in their honor, but O. Henry lived most of his life in hotels.’ The O. Henry was the fall 2019 destination for a Downton Abbey Tea. Three of us anticipated the occasion for weeks.
If you have an opportunity like this, don’t miss it. Plan the occasion with friends who are both the sweet and savory in our lives. This post is dedicated to Mary and Jane in remembrance of the Downton Abbey Tea
