Though much of her early life, including her real name and exact date of birth, remains in shadow, Laura Keene is thought to have come from a well-to-do background.
After dining at Delmonico's last Saturday evening, the author finds New York City to be in a state of confusion. In this short narrative, he offers a description of the unusual and often backwards scenes he encounters. Blaming his time at Delmonico's for the strange events, he vows not to return for a year, but explains he wrote the article after another dinner at Delmonico's yesterday.
