If a hostess is giving a large party, inviting guests in two or three shifts, go during the time mentioned on your invitation. It isn't good manners to decide it would be more fun to go with friends invited for a different hour. The hostess, not the guest, is supposed to set the time.— The Napa Valley Register, 1956
