How sad.  :(

Do you know if she actually wanted to have children? She doesn't strike one as the most maternal but you never know. Perhaps having a child would've softened her somewhat?

After two years of marriage and no children, Missy wrote to her daughter suggesting this but Elisabetta answered: "You say, if only I could have a child? Yes, Mama dear, I would like to have one but for the moment there are three obstacles. First of all, my nerves are not quite in the condition they ought to be... second, the situation combined with both our shaky nerves makes things very risky and in such conditions it would be unfair on the future life to give such a bad beginning. Thirdly there is the question of money. We can only just scrape through with what we have got."

how anyone can say that elisabeta looks better than mignon is beyond me. look how pretty mignon is!

As a child Elizabeth was very beautiful.  It was a striking time beuty.  As Elizabeth and MIgnon matured there is doubt that Mignow was the prettier of the two.
