Wednesday when I arrived Mabel Watson Payne had only recently fallen into the deep sleep of her afternoon nap. It lasted a long time. I stayed and kept watch while her father left to do some necessary things. Mabel seemed a little dazed just at first after waking up, but before very long she began stretching her powers. She returns to babyhood in sleep, and then shrugs it off when conscious life begins again.
