Mrs. Crosby and Mrs. Ayres (LOC)

That's Mrs. John Sherwin Crosby (the former Nellie Fassett), founder and president of the Women's Democratic Club of New York City, president of the Woman's National Democratic League--she gave a victory breakfast at the Waldorf-Astoria to congratulate the incoming first lady, Mrs. Wilson, and her daughters.

And Mrs. Steven Beckwith Ayres (that spelling), also a leader of women supporters of the Democratic Party in NYC. Her husband was a congressman from the Bronx:
