Bar Harbor Snub

"Louise Bowen, originally from Chicago, spent her summers from 1882 to the 1940s in fashionable Bar Harbor. Though very rich and well-connected, she met with some difticulty in establishing friendly relations with the tonier eastern seaboard families. Once, driving her pony-cart down a country road, she was dumped out of it when the pony shied and upset the cart. Two Philadelphia ladies came along in their carriages, noticed the dazed figure lying on the road, stopped, got out, and examined Mrs. Bowen briefly. Said one to the other, 'Who is she?' Her companion shook her head. They took no further action. Finally a native islander happened to come along and sent for help."
