American princesses in Europe by Your Brother Kings

Your Brother Kings writes:
I continue today with a transcription from the New York Times, June 23, 1907, pg. X4. This "society column" addresses, at length, the trend of European aristocrats marrying the daughters of wealthy American businesspeople in the late 1800's and early 1900's.

"Miss Edith Collins, a daughter of Clarence L. Collins, and who made a trip to the Klondike with Mrs. Roswell Hitchcock, married Richard Bey, Prince Czaykowski, a Pole. He was attached to the Turkish Diplomatic Service. Later the Countess sued for divorce and obtained it in 1904. The evidence, taken in Paris, was kept secret."
YBK concludes:
Please visit again tomorrow for the fourth installment; I will conclude the transcription on Friday.
Be sure to check back!
