Letter from Whitelaw Reid to Edith Roosevelt


Library of Congress Manuscript Division


Ambassador Reid writes Edith Kermit Carow Roosevelt that there has been no proof produced against the Duchess of Marlborough Consuelo Vanderbilt Spencer-Churchill, only "an outburst of envemoned but vague allegations," which the Duchess denies. Reid believes the stories were inspired either by her husband, the Duke of Marlborough Charles Richard John Spencer-Churchill, or his family. Reid also tells Roosevelt he has heard privately that King Edward VII is "much enraged at the Duke's conduct."
