Party Celebrates 78th Birthday
Mrs. E.J. Swetnam of 134 Hartnell street was the honor guest at a surprise party given for her by her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Drinkwater, yesterday afternoon in honor of her 78th birthday. Mrs. Swetnam was born and raised in Kentucky but she left there and came to California in the early eighties, and has made her home in Monterey for many years. She was completely surprised yesterday and had not the least notion that she was having a party when two or three of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren called to wish her many happy returns of the day. As friends joined relatives and more relatives came, Mrs. Swetnam realized that she was the guest of honor and hostess at an informal reception. When the beautiful birthday cake with 78 candles was brought to her to cut, the afternoon was complete, for it was just another of the sweet remembrances for many happy birthdays that was offered to Mrs. Swetnam during the afternoon. (Ellen Jane Lawson Swetnam
