Countess okay with daughter marrying an American,but not her son!

July 21, 1926

The Countess Juan de Guell, lady-in-waiting to Queen Victoria Eugenia of Spain, sailed today for San Sebastian on the Spanish mail liner Manuel Arnus, She is traveling with her 15-year-old daughter, Carmen, and her son, Juan.
The Countess was in the United States for a brief visit. She enjoyed her stay, and she gave the impression that she "would be willing to have her daughter marry an American, but would not wish her son to marry one, because American girls were not home-loving," the New York Times reported.
