Stork Plans a Visit to Merchant Prince's Home Soon ;
Family Awaits Destiny of Fourth Generation Heir
j A Billionaire Youngster.

' family is waiting and
watching to see what the story is go

story is July. And if it's a boy Chi

Long Island lodge will be in town
with all her old friends.

owner of a fortune of at least $350,
