Hours for calling.

The usual for calling are from two to five
P. M. An evening visit by a lady implies some degree
of social acquaintance, and should never be made as a
first call, except under special circumstances. From
seven to nine in the evening are the usual hours for
gentlemen to call; and there is nothing more delight-
ful in society than calls by husbands and wives, or
brothers and sisters together, during the evening hours, on their acquaintances and friends.
