The First Ball of the Family Circle Dancing Class: Delmonico's 12-4-1882

The first ball of the Family Circle Dancing Class for this season was given last evening at Delmonico's. The floor of the ball-room was over-hauled and almost entirely renovated for the occasion. The only decorations used were the lambrequins, curtains, portieres, &c., generally used for the Patriarch balls. Refreshments such as coffee, tea, bouillon, and ices were served in the small room adjoining the ball-room to the west, and supper was served in the restaurant on Fifth avenue at 12:30. A variation of the usual programmed of the Family C9rcle Dancing Class balls was furnished by deferring the cotillion until after supper. The cotillion began at 1 o'clock with about 75 couples. There were no favors. It was led by Mr. Charles Russell Hone, with Miss Turnure. The ball began about 11 o'clock and ended about 2:30. About 250 persons were present, among whom were Attorney-General and Mrs. Brewster, Mrs. Don Cameron, Lord and Lady Mandeville, Mr. and Mrs. W.K.
