THE American Woman needs no introduction abroad. Always she is the most welcome of the throngs of self-invited guests who attend the great annual "At Home" which the European world holds... More > for the visiting strangers, an entertainment that is becoming an all the year around function. All that Europe has to offer is hers on call, so long as she radiates that graciousness and appreciation which everywhere distinguishes her — the most vivacious and distinctive feminine personality of all the women of the world to be seen on the European Playground.

Henri de Navarre is the chief romantic and historical figure of all that part of France bounded on the south by the Pyrenean frontier of Spain. He was but a Prince of Béarn when his mother, Jeanne d'Albret, became the sovereign of French Navarre and of Béarn, but the romantic life which had centred around the ancestral château at Pau was such that the young prince went up to Paris with a training in chivalry and a love of pomp and splendour which was second only to that of François I."< Less
