    Shows a doctor, a disgruntled-looking young woman (dressed for a ball and staring at a bouquet), and her mother, arrayed around a table. Having heard the mother explain that her daughter had persisted in keeping silent and staring at her bouquet, the doctor advises that 'We must first get the ball out of her head, and then perhaps the nervous system may right itself!'.
