LETTER COMES TO LIGHT
London, July 16. Desire to avoid
publicity that might be given a cor
respondence of many years is said
to have led to the settlement made
yesterday out of court by executors
of the estate of the late J. P. Morgan
of the claim of the Countess de
Bechevet-Beauregard for $30,000. It f"
is understood the executors agreed
to return the vase, pedestal and pic
ture for the sale of which to Morgan
the countess, demanded $30,000 and
are to pay her $5,000 and defray all
her legal costs.
The countess, who has kept copies
of all her letters to the late financier,
intending to present them to him
bound at some time, says Morgan
conducted his correspondence with
her through the medium of the news
papers, as it was against his prin
ciple to write letters. One of the let
ters written by the countess reads:
"Friend Beloved A woman of any
worth would only love one of whom
she had a right to be proud, and so
at this moment I permit my heart to
give way quite freely to passion, and
do not subject It to the horrors of
deprivation under the pretext of be
ing strong-minded. It is in confi
dence that it flies to you. You may
say what you think of It, but you will
not destroy, I am sure, that posses
sion to be admired. And though this
affection must be, for me, a little
strange, I ask of the destinies that
they may surround it with all felicity,
which will be to me the poetry of
Hoping to see you again very
soon, desired friend, and as one must
always belong to some one, I am with f
joy yours. Comtesse Diane."
