Peters In the Newspaper, Part #2

This post is a continued effort to share all of the Peter’s Family Newspaper articles that I discovered in Washington, D.C. newspapers of my Great Grand Uncle’s (Yancey D. Peters) immediate family.
I have transcribed the following article below and bolded my cousins names.  In this article Alice and Carlotta Peters (sisters) were performing in Mrs. Norma’s Recital playing the piano.
At the time of this article Alice was (20) and Carlotta was (15)  They are my 1st Cousins 2x removed.
