The third ball of the Family Circle Dancing Class
for this season was given at Delmonico's last night.
These balls are even more select than those given by
the "Patriarchs," although the same gentlemen
practically manage them. They are subscription
balls, and the number of tickets is limited to 225.
There was a great demand for admission to the
entertainment last night, and many prominent
citizens had to be refused tickets because the list
was filled before their applications were made. The
decorations in the ball-room were very simple. The
great feature of the ball was the hand bouquets for
the ladies, which were composed of the rarest
flowers. Supper was served from 11 o'clock P.M. to 2
A.M. In the supper-room leading from he ball-room.
The supper was more elaborate than any ever given by
the "Patriarchs," and the wines were the finest that
Delmonico could furnish. Dancing began at 11 o'clock
and ended at 2 this morning, at which hour carriages
were ordered. At 1 o'clock the cotillion was begun,
led by Mr. Charles Russel Hone and Miss Kate
Bulkley. On the left were Mr. Delancey Kane and
partner and Mr. Frank Sturgis and partner, and on
the right Mr. Ward McAllister and Mrs. Eugene
Cruger. The entertainment was for dancing only, and
was in no sense a reception. Some of the costumes of
the ladies were remarkably elegant, and a more
select assembly has never been catered for by
