BY THE WAY
(Continued From Third Page.)
promptly extended invitations to the entire cocktail party to go to New York
and have lunch with them in Wall Street.
Aside from the stock market, Mr. Laszlo and Mr. Boulton profess
an interest in the "American Girl,” immortalized in a none too
flattering way by that Italian humorist Fracarolli by that never forget
table book, "Le Ragazze Americane." Though all of our fair daughters
seem cast in the same mold, they find no trace of the Scott Fitzgerald
girl; indeed they find tier no different from her English counterpart
with the exception of a few indigenous to New York proper. One of
the exceptions attacked one of our heroes, namely, John, during his
first few hours in America at a cocktail party, insisting that he had
accosted her while "in the cups" at a certain dance three nights
previous. Johnny replied politely that t’was not he, since his im
maculate spatted boot had fust descended to terra flrma from the
Queen Mary several hours before. The lady persisted and so rudely
that he turned and said, "You seem to think in denying you that
I am not being gentlemanly, but my dear girl, allow me to point out
to you that the only way you’ll ever become a lady is by marrying my
friend Teddy!" With that he fled, which brings us to "Teddy," son of
Sir William Boulton, M. P.. and grandson of Lady Milburn, who’s
family place is at Witham, Essex.
Only last week the Corcoran Art Gallery had on exhibition Sir Phillip
Laszlo's portrait of Crown Prince Umberto of Italy. It has been said of Sir
Phillip, who executes his masterpieces with amazing rapidity, that to find a
crown head or famous personage in Europe who has not sat for this popular
and famous painter (knighted by the late King George V) would be a rarity.
In the meantime his younger son is here to see the sights, in his own words,
“escorted and welcomed daily by the minions of your press!”
