You seem to find a fair amount of time for literary work, and that is good. M.I.D.— Sent you the address of the Stock and Share Broker. The man you mentioned is still in -business — I don't know how you came to hear of his death! An Englishman now in Aus tralia showed me last week his obit uary-notice in an English paper.

"MARRIED TO A FOREIGNER." WOMEN AND NATIONALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 25 March 1924

'MARRIED TO A FOREMJNER.' WOMEN AND NATIONALITY. A proposal that sons of Frenchwomen who have married foreigners, but are living in France, should have compul sorily to take the nationality of their mother is arousing a lively interest at a moment when France is ready to seize upon almost any method .which will increase her population. ^ - The intresting, .point about the dis cussion ia tte willingness t® give to trench women tlTe automatic light of conferring nationality upon their chil dren when the Frenchwoman in general has 'so few of the rights which . the modern .woman considers as a matter of course. Also, if an Englishwoman married a. Frenchman there would be no choice as to whether her children were to be French or not. The 'right' is in reality no right at all, but merely one more means of increasing the French army, in which women have no say whatever. 'I am always gettin' confused in my grammar,' said Pat.

Women and Drink PROHIBITION AS IT STRSitSS API AUSTRALIAN WOMAN. That prohibition is not all that it set out to be- is generally conceded now-a-days, but a visiting Australian woman writes from the land of the Volstead Law, drawing a very sorry pic ture. On the boat going' over she says thero was talk ad nauseum of a pro hibition and bootlegging. And as for the people on board: well, of the women of the two continents it was the Ameri cans who drank to excess,- not all of them of course, but those of them that did; went altogether over the limit, while among the British women almost absolute teetotalism prevailed. 'I liked one American woman,'* she says, 'who did not drink, nor did her husband, but another woman, qulte'nice otherwise, took altogether too much. - 'One man, a retired naval man, told me that he had nothing but evil to say of prohibition (and he was a tee totaller, too).
