Excerpt from Celebrities at Home The first glance at the Duke of Richmond suggests a question interesting to genealogists, naturalists, Scotchmen, and believers in blue blood generally. How comes it that the lineal descendant of Charles Stuart and Louise Renee de Perrencourt de Querouailles is a typical Englishman in face, in figure, in manner, and in mind? 'Rowley' himself, with his long nose and saturnine expression, had but a little drop of English blood in his veins. His mother was a Frenchwoman, his grandmother a Medici. The fair Duchess of Portsmouth in England and of Aubigne in France was a pretty French girl, with the mutine face and hair curled a la bebe made familiar to all by the pencil of Lely. Perhaps the Stuarts were not a strong-enough race to transmit their lineaments to remote posterity as the Berkeley and the Ashleys have done; but the fact remains that the present lord of Goodwood and other broad lands in England and Scotland is, perhaps, the most thorough Englishman in the Cabinet.
