October 6, 1906


The article describes multiple educated women’s lives, including the duchess of Westminster and women of Wellesley college who study sewing, writing, and reading.


Concerning Women
The duchess of Westminster has the largest flawless turquoise owned by any private individual and the duchess of Sutherland possesses the only complete necklace of black pearls.
Mrs. Ian Malcolm, the daughter of Mrs. Langtry, and her husband were in London for several days after their return from Burma and India, but although the “Jersey Lily” was in London after her triumphal tour of South America, no visits were exchanged between mother and daughter.
There are a number of young women supporting themselves at Wellesley college while studying. The work done is mainly sewing, writing, and reading aloud. The bureau of the Christian association of the college finds that there are more applicants for work than can be supplied.
