Western Australian (30 October 1905)
"Miss Jones, refusing to take advantage of the continued indisposition of Miss Payten, forfeited the final."
Western Mail (3 November 1906)
"Broadly speaking, Miss Payten is all that had been said of her, and, in some respects, she is more. For instance, we were not told of her accuracy or, rather, it was not insisted upon. Whether standing behind the baseline or at the net, Miss Payten seldom strikes a ball that refuses to go where she would have it. On the other hand, from accounts that came to us it seemed that Miss Payten never served a ball that she did not follow in to the net. As a matter of fact, Miss Payten occasionally follows in, more often she prudently waits on the baseline for the return. Still, when she does follow in she is not to be stopped by hard driving for her volleying is as well polished as is her ground work. Expecially resourceful, she has a large number of strokes with which to vary her play and perplex her opponent.
