Messages Sent by Fan

In the language of the fan: Come visit me at the Lee-Fendall House. In the Victorian era, fans were in popular use. Similar to texting a friend across the room, a few of the possible messages include: closing slowly - I wish to speak with you, carrying in the left hand - I desire your acquaintance, dropping the fan -we will be friends, carrying in right hand in front of face - follow me, resting on the left cheek - no, resting on the right cheek - yes, snapping shut - anger or annoyance, opening and shutting - you are cruel, open wide - wait for me, drawing forward across forehead - we are being watched, and drawing across cheek - I love you.
