Mabel Watson Payne is carefully  putting the stamps on the envelopes of the Christmas cards Daddy is getting ready to mail out. This was in the break before dinner, after we returned from Huntington Park.  It was dark outside already, and the indoor light was dim. Hence, the crude photography. But Mabel's spirit prevailed easily and beamed itself all the brighter out of the evening obscurity.
