New York, Feb. 7. Threatening letters, sent Miss Vivien Gould, warn ing her against her marriage, are in the hands of the police today. They were sent anonymously. The girl has not read them. One says: ."Dear sweet girl beware remember your aunt who married a blue blooded . nobleman, the rotten remnant of a declining race. There are still Count DeCastellans willing to snatch up good, clean American girls for their dollars.' Once they have done tills they throw aside the pure young things and return to their ways of dissolution." . New York, Feb. 7. The old story of American wealth and a foreign ti tle meeting at the altar was re-staged today in the marriage of Miss Helen Vivien Gould, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Jay Gould, and Lord Decies of England. In St, Bartholo mew's church, before an audience that represented American and Eng lish artisocracy, this eighteen-year-old girl and her fiance of 44 years were wedded this afternoon. As is usually the case in Interna tional alliances of such prominence, .today's wedding again demonstrated the morbid curiosity of the public and thousands of persons crowded about old St, Bartholomew's to get a glimpse of the bride and the notables in - at tendance. The services of several hundred policemen were required to keep the streets clear for the endless string of automobiles that deposited heir richly gowned and faultlessly groomed guests at the church doors. 'Similar scenes were enacted at the Gould home, 867 Fifth Avenue, where a reception was held immediately fol lowing the ceremony. , The full Episcopal service was per formed by the Rev. Lelghton Parks, rector of St. Bartholomew's, assisted by the Rev. David H. Greer. Ten ' thousand dollars worth of flowers had turned the interior of the church into a veritable bower, the Bcene of enchantment being enhanced by a special musical program, under the direction of Organist Hyde. In addi tion to the regular choir of St. Bar tholomew's there was the boy's choir from the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The soloist for the occasion was RIcardo Martin, of the Metropo litan Opera Company. Sumptous Affair. In sumptuousness, the wedding ri valed that of the bride's older sister Marjorle, who at the same altar was married to Anthony J. Drexel less . than ten months ago. Misa Gould's attendants were her sister, little Miss Edith ' Gould, aa maid of honor, her still smaller sla ter, Miss Gloria Gould, and Miss Dl ana Dalzel as flower girls, while the bridesmaids were Miss Hope Hamll ton, the bride's cousin; Misa Hannah Randolph, of Philadelphia, Miss Alli son Pierce,- Miss Louise Cromwell of Washington, Miss Emeline Holmea and Miss Beatrice Claflin. Lord Al- astair Graham, a cousin of Lord De cies. was best man. The ushers were the Earl Percy, Lord Camoys, Robert Grey of London, Phoenix Ingraham, Mdncure Robinson, Robert E. Russell, ' Anthony J. Drexel, Jr., and Francis W. Crownlnahield. The bride was given away by her father. The wedding gown was of heavy white duchess satin, in semi-empire style, heavily embroidered with sil ver roses. The train was eight yards long. The veil was of real lace. Lady Decies plans to wear her bridal gown at the coronation of King George and at her presentation to the English court in June. The bridesmaid's gowns were of white chiffon over white satin, trim med with festoons of sea green satin ribbon. The gowns were in the high waisted empire style. The hata were of white chiffon, trimmed with green. The bride's drees was made in Paris, as was the rest of her trousseau, on which was spent, according to a re liable report, the snug little sum of 140,000. Those who like to follow the el aborate weddings among New York's millionaires estimate the total coat of Misa Vlvien'a transformation Into Lady Decies at close to I7S.000, to say nothing of the "dot" of several millions that she wilt take her titled husband. Mrs., George J.. Gould Is nothing if not lavish in her social af fairs, and her planning of today's wedding, from first to last, was In titter disregard of coat. The prelim Inary entertainments, the decorations of the church and house, the gifts to ' the wedding party and the other od la and ends brought the total expendi- turea up to the proportions of a good sized fortune. Lord and Lady Decies will go to California on their honeymoon. They will return to New York for a brief stay before sailing for England, where Lady Decies plans a social career of the greatest prominence. Disparity of Ages Noted. The great disparity in the ages of Lord and Lady Decies added a note of interest to their wedding. Lord De cies whose- full name is John Graham Hope de la Poer Beresford, Baron Decies, of County Waterford, Ireland, first met Miss Gould while he was ex hibiting horses at the New York show several years ago. She was then in short dresses, but It was seen at the outset that be was greatly interested in the child, as she then was. Lord Decies, who is only two years younger man nis rainer-in-iaw, nas seen much service as a soldier, having been in the Boer campaign. Being an engaging conversationalist, it .was suggested that his stories of 'his trav els and fighting may have won the heart of Miss Vivien, for Lord Decies was a frequent guest of the Goulds at their Georgian court and town resi dences. Lord Decies, however, denied the Impeachment that he had played Iago to Miss Gould's Desdemona. Lord Decies himself thought it noth ing-unusual that a man of 44 should wish to marry a girl of 18. "Why, I'm not old," he said to the New York interviewers. "In England a man of 44, especially If he has lived actively in the open air, as I have done Is considered right in his prime. Dif ferences in ages such as between Miss Gould and nW, are very common in England." In addition to being a soldier, Lord Decies Is one of the most prominent sportsmen in England. He owns a small racing stable and is known as a cricket and football player, a hunter and boxer. The country seats over which Lady Decies will be mistress are Kilcorney, Ireland; Sefton Park, Slaugh, Eng land, and Beresford Lodge, Kent. TEN MEN KILLED t IN BIG EXPLOSION BODIES OF VICTIMS .
