New Year Revels

Mabel Watson Payne left San Francisco in her stroller early in the morning on New Year's Day in the highest possible spirits, anticipating a merry holiday time in the East Bay and wearing a new bonnet with fancy topknot.

Clearly she brought the party with her, as generally proves to be the case. But then when it was time to rest she was docility itself settling down for a nap. The perfect baby of the world.
