History of the Nickerson Mansion: 1890

Chicago Daily Tribune, October 15, 1890, page 3

Entertaining the Lady Visitors
Receptions Given by Mrs. S. M. Nickerson and Mrs. H. H. Porter

Two pretty receptions were given yesterday afternoon by Mrs. S. M. Nickerson, No. 317 Erie street, and Mrs. H. H. Porter., No. 311 Erie street, in honor of some of the ladies accompanying the foreign visitors. The hours chosen were the same — from 3 o’ clock until 6 — and the guests at both entertainments were almost identical with those who attended the reception at the Auditorium Monday night, at which Mrs. O. W. Potter presided. Mrs. Nickerson’s spacious rooms were most tastefully adorned with flowers and plants. Mrs. Nickerson received in the drawing-room and was assisted by Mrs. Roland Nickerson, Mrs. T. B. Blackstone, and a number of English ladies. Refreshments were served in the dining-room. Almost seventy-five guests were present, including nearly all the prominent society women.
