A Rothschild Girl Marries Outside of Jewish Faith

The first Rothschild to marry a Christian was Miss Peggy Behrens, the grand-daughter of the first Lord Rothschild, who was married this morning to Mr. Peter Harris, an English businessman.

It is the tradition of the Rothschild family to marry within the family, or, at least, within the Jewish faith.
