An American Beautr.
Probably the most superbly beautiful
e woman ever married in this country
6 to a foreign diplomat was Mrs. Bass.
I of Mississippi. After having passed
several winters in Washington she
o married the Chevalier Bernatti, a man
- of rare accomplishments, but in no
It ways good-looking. Her beauty was
a so celebrated when she was the
t widow Bass that the mere mention of
" it sufficees to recall to many throughout H
e the country the vision of her superb
e presence. "A daughter of the gods,
Sdivinely tall and most divinely fair."
SThe Chavaller Bernatti, after his mar
riage, went to Turkey, where he was
the Minister of Italy for some years,
and the Sultan presented Mine. Ber.
tnett with an exquisite necklace of
pearls. He died and she returned
here to recover from the United States
Government a considerable Sum of
money for cotton destroyed on her
Mississippi plantation. When last in
Washington she was accompanied by
her daughter, Miss Bass, who has
inherited her mother's sunny face,
wealth of light brown hair, and im
perial person.-'BostonL Record.
