Subject: RE: Help: Wearing hats or caps ; Manners?
As McGrath says way back in the thread, we Quakers had a tradition about keeping hats on. As a plain Friend I often (daily) go about with a broad brimed Quake lid. However, I do take it off in Restaurants and even before meeting, when in the old days you'd see us all with hats on in meeting. As someone would rise to speak in meeting, all the hats would come off, until the speaker would sit, and they would all go back on, but I have never seen that. that was years ago, though I had a sort of quaint niceness, wouldn't mind seeing it again, perhaps. Cheers Larry
