Personal and Otherwise
Miss Esmé Wallace, who is to marry Viscount Tiverton, son of the Earl of Halsbury, is a daughter of Lady Duff-Gordon by her first husband, and is a niece of Eleanor Glyn, the novelist. Her mother married Sir Cosmo Duff-Gordon seventeen years ago, and about twelve years ago she started a dressmaker's shop in London, in Clifford Street. She was one of the first society women to engage in business, and her firm, under the trade name of "Lucille, Limited," [sic] now in Hanover Square, does an ultra smart business. Like her sister, she hails from Canada. Miss Wallace is very pretty, and her finacé, Lord Tiverton, wrote a play, "Naughty Nancy," under the pen name of Oliver Bath. It was presented at the Savoy. Lord Halsbury, his father, has been three times Lord High Chancellor.
