Jeanie's World

 Jeanie spent winters in New York, attending balls, weddings, and the opera. She went on calls with her mother and sister.  The family attended church every Sunday. From time to time, she would visit her cousins Janey and Eliza Wilkes in Washington, DC. In the summer, the Smedberg family joined countless New Yorkers in packing up the entire house to escape the heat in the  mountains of New York. The  Smedberg family , of course, returned to Devasego.
