The Grand Duchess who has maintained a strict silence on political questions since her arrival, relaxed her rule long enough to say that she believed the Russians were discontented with the Soviet form of Government and that some day Russia would become a monarchy again. Former princes, counts, generals and others of the Czaristic regime make the Waldorf-Astoria look like a miniature Russian Imperial Court.

The New York “World” in commenting on the activities of the Monday Opera Club, says: “The pre-war established social order of Europe has found a champion at last. A pan-royal, pan##ble party has been discovered. Not in Paris or ## Constantinople where Russian Princes, Barons and Generals are so liberally at the service of any one needing a good cook, a tailor or a coachman. Not in London, where the emigres used to teach dancing and music and mourn for the vanished Bourbons. Not even in Coburg, where as comic a court as Sancho Panza ruled has its seat.

The Restoration Movement is right here in New York City. Its headquarters is Sherry’s. And some of its chief executives are the descendants of those simple frontiersmen of New England and Virginia who were supposed to have settled in the American forests to get away from Kings. For the Legitimists are the members of the Monday Opera Club, whose spokesman is the President of the Colonial Dames of America.”
