PERSONAL - Lady Duff Gordon

New York Times

The death of Lady DUFF GORDON was announced in London on July 17.  Her Ladyship, who wielded an easy and agreeable pen, was one of the best known writers on Egyptian life and scenery.  Lady DUFF GORDON had long been consumptive, and, as the atmosphere of the Nile proved conducive to her health, she took up her abode near the First Cataract.  The Prince and Princess of WALES recently visited her kiosk.
