IN preparation for the annual summer scattering of official and resident so ciety folk,-there-have been an unusnal number of charming events v-Jiich served as a medium of leave-taking. Thetrench Ambassador and Mme. "Jussenuid proved their popularity, and that of the Counselor of the Embassy and Countess de Peretti de la Rocca'by holding a reception for more than aoo guests it the embassy on Tuesday night. Music, flowers, and such brilliant conversation as one always hears-there, turned the event into one 'Of unusual interest, rather than mere sadness over the , departure of the interesting counselor and his wife. Senator and Mrs. Duncan U. Fletcher gave a real Southern supper party in honor of the Secretary of State and Mrs. Bryan; and on Friday, the same day, about half of the women of the Congressional circle united in a big colonial "Dutch treat" luncheon at -Dower House, MA, motoring out in parties and spending the greater part of the. afternoon there. There were several large buffet luncheon parties, now the most favored way of meeting one's friends in number, and quite replacing in popularity -the old-fashioned pink tea, and there were tea-dances fevery afternoon, only the younger "set indulging. f The dinner and dance given by Representative and Mrs. Peter Goelet Gerry fend Mrs. Richard H. Townsend for the Vice President and Mrs. Marshall on (Monday night, was one of the most delightful events of the spring season. Real izing the love of the Vice President and Mrs. Marshall, for young people, the hosts invited just a sufficient number from the diplomatic and higher official set to give, dignity, while for the most the guests were younger. -Still more young folk were asked to the reception and dance at Mrs. Townsend'. The long French windows, opening out to the stone terrace, and the charming Italian gar den, with its little fountains and soft blue lights gave an artistic touch as can be had alone at Mrs. Townsend's home. In addition to their reception, which was a complete surprise, the French Ambassador and MmcJusserand also gave a dinner, which brought together some diplomats who were once stationed here, -and other pleasant folk besides. The Duke and Duchess de Richelieu were-of the party, and that reminds one that nothing could be more delightful than to hear the duchess, one time little Miss Beth Wise, of Washington, tell how she coasted down the hills of Washington with her little boy friends, either on runpers. or wheels, while her beautiful hair floated willfully to the breeze. The duchess knew all the children about Dupont Circle when her father, Rear Admiral -Wise, had" a house in O street Senor Don Jose F. Godoy, now Mexican Minister to Cuba, but for several years attached to the Mexican Embassy here-and for the most part tcharge d'affaires, was the Am bassador's guest with Senora de Godoy, than whom there were never better loved diplomats in Washington. Another delightful former member of the diplomatic circle here, whom the Ambassador and Mme. Jusserand entertained, was Baroness Moncheur, who caVne to the United States on her annual visit to her parents, Gen. and Mrs." Powell Clayton. Baron and Baroness Moncheur met iff Mexico when Gen. day ton was Ambassador there from this country, and the baron was Belgian charge 'd'affaires in Mexico City, and their coming to Washington was. a great event. The legation in H street near the Metropolitan Club was the most favored meet ing place of the younger members of the smart set, and the baroness was often chaperon for Miss -Alice Roosevelt, now Mrs. Nicholas Longworth, and the sprightly Countess Cassini, with her dashing hats and red-heeled French shoes. v Far less charming to contemplate is the general breaking up of society within the next half-month. Lady Spring-Rice, wife of the British Ambassador, who has so masterfully and pleasantly handled diplomatic and social affairs for the embassy that the invalidism of the Ambassador has not depressed society, will sair Saturday with her two children, going to England to remain for a little while. Hie Ambassador, a little later will take up his residence at Dublin, N. H, and will have a friendly and interesting community of Washington folk about him. Dr Dumba, the Austro-Hungarian Ambassador, who has again leased the Hood cottage at Manchester, will also take bjs departure from Washington within two weeks, and with him will go the Counselor and Baroness Zwiedinek, who have also leased a cottage there, and the detached or bachelor members of the corps. Mme. Dumba will like Manchester as much for a long visit as she did for a very short one last season. She adores tennis more than any other outdoor sport, and it is at Manchester that tennis and even old-fashioned croquette reigns supreme. There are a number of interesting things arranged for the coming six days, one of the gayest events being the dinner-dance which Mrs. Harriet Blaine will give at the Playhouse on Tuesday night in honor of Miss Katherine Garrison McClintock. the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. Garrison McClintock. On the same day, Mrs. Gore and Mrs. Oldfield will give a luncheon at Rauscher's in honor of Mrs. William Jennings Bryan, at night, the Congressional Club will Calloway, of La Grange. Os,, on June 10.
