The Etiquette Demanded
Mourning: How should a daughter be attired when, after a year of mourning, she attends the ceremony of placing the remains of her deceased mother in a private vault? Should she wear black crepe?
Etiquette demands that a daughter should wear mourning for at least a year, but there is nothing to prevent her, from wearing, such garb for a longer period. On such an occasion as named the daughter should be attired in clothing of subdued colors, and she might wear black crepe if she desired. – San Francisco Call, 1912
