Well finally I can report that my first article on Empress Alexandra's War Relief Work is appearing in the March 2014 Royalty Digest Quarterly which will be available soon.  The magazine is also publishing an article by Janet Ashton on Queen Marie and her swashbuckling American admirer, Samuel Hill.  Janet has been so incredibly supportive over the years that I am so thrilled that my article is appearing in the same issue as her. 



Thanks, Griff - and I now have my copy with your wonderful article - so nice to see it in print at last, and so well-deserved!

You have even longer footnotes than Greg and I do on ours - which is also in a big way about the majestic Columbia River as well as Queen Marie and Sam and the Maryhill Museum, because that great wide rolling strip of water and its bleak yellow banks, along with Seattle and Portland, absolutely inspired the article!  :-)

OH my gosh Janet I can't wait to read your article!!!!...and YES those footnote of mine go on forever, don't they...In the future articles I have tried to trim them down a bit and include the material in the text...see you in a few weeks....

Beautiful faithful Nargony.

RosiePosie, that is quite understandable.  By-the-by, I noticed that your banner is of Princess Grace. Just to say, one the favorite books in my library is Princess Grace's Book of Flowers...

YES those footnote of mine go on forever, don't they...


Not at all - they just show that you are a born historian..:-) Sometimes information would break up the flow of the text, but is too important to be ignored. Personally, I love a nice long note discussing the merits of various accounts, which would be distracting and quite out of place in the main article. :-)

WOW thanks Janet...In the second article I have tried to introduce more information in the text...we will have to see how that works...

Hey Janet, just to say, I am not quite sure where I should introduce my new thread on the Empress...do you have any ideas? 

I sort of want to start a thread where I could answer questions about my articles, as well as open a discussion on the Empress.  I was thinking of calling it "The Empress Alexandra Fight Back: Part Two"

Well anyway I guess things will have to wait till I get back from England....

I'd keep it in this section and call it something about her war work, maybe?

See you next weekend!
