Dancing The Yule Tide Polka 1885 (1)
Society began the week with the first cotillion ball
of the season at Delmonico's last evening, and it

simple, consisting of a little holly and Christmas
green on the balcony of the ballroom and a few cut
flowers in the reception rooms. A pleasant scene was
presented just before supper, when the floor was
covered with waltzers. The simple costumes and the
fresh faces of the younger people for the cotillions
are celebrated for the number of debutantes who
attend-gave a charming appearance to the ballroom.
