Comus Edition, Carnival Bulletin, March 7, 1916
The Bulletin announced that "Comus the King of Mirth, this year presents in his own inimitable fashion a pageant of unusual artistic splendor entitled 'Glimpse of the Modern World of Art.'" The twenty-float procession on Mardi Gras night. Comus sought "...for a few brief moments, to restore that loved memory of untouched joy which he and his Mystic Crewe [sic] have ever lightened the hearts of the people." It was not, however, the recent hurricane from which Comus promised relief, but rather the "era of world-wide upheaval and stirred emotions" that had led to the great war in Europe.
