It reads "The Three Damnid" or "Danmid" Wilhemina Greek Slave & Damnid or Danmid"
Perhaps they were referring to the Dana´ds, daughters of DanaŘs in Greek mythology painted by Burne-Jones. "Greek Slave" seems to be a reference to Hiram Powers famous statute but these young ladies are certainly more completely dressed than she! Wilhemina has defeated us as an art history reference.
