The correspondent who, under the name MARQUISE DE FONTENOY, furnishes the Chicago
Tribune readers with the gossip about European aristocracy, in
one of her later papers tells the story of an English millionaire who
has left his immense fortune, country seats and estates to his
sick-nurse, and alludes to two or three prominent instances where these
attendants have inveigled their titled charges into marriage,
stating that scores of similar instances might be adduced.
