  • Let me attempt to make this clear: We talk about what we want to talk about. It is called "freedom of speech." Surely, you have heard of it? Father Andrew

  • He is an Irishman. Doubtless there is something from Burke's Peerages about Clinton. They always seem to enjoy showing us the heritage of our presidents. Our most royal president was George Washington. He used to paint his family coat of arms on his carriage doors. His great grandfather is buried in the Spencer family chapel. Hence, it seems likely, he is related to Wills and Harry...

  • Some years ago, I had lunch with the Rev.Mother Alexandra. For some reason, the conversation turned to Philip and his Orthodox connection. Mother Alexandra (as I recall) believe Philip had never actually be Orthodox. I didn't question that. And, for all I know, I may be mis-remembering what she said. It was a long time ago. She is what? His aunt? It may be she was mis-remembering...

  • Could concern for being descended (again) from tanners be the reason Princess Diana never responded to invitations from Chillicothe to come there and visit? I gave the information about her Chillicothe connection to John Switzer, a columnist fot The Columbus Dispatch. He followed it up, and kept that story going. I cut it out and mailed it to Kensington Palace, to the princes. No...

  • Germano-Scandinavian? Tsar Nicholas's mother was a Danish princess. However, I expect she was as German as the Kiser. And, as I demonstrated the other day, with reference to Obolensky's Byzantine Commonwealth, the Royal Family in Russia descends from Edith, a daughter of the penultimate Saxon king, Harold, II. My ancestor Edward the Exile was the last. But, Edward's family...

  • The venerable archpriest needs to know the following: Prince William, the son of Diana, has great grandparents from Chillicothe, OH. He is related to Nathan Hale, on his mother's side of the family. Princess Diana's great, great grandparents moved from Chillicothe, because they had become to rich (and too grand?) to live there. Mead Paper Company makes the place unbearable (there's...

  • Here's a story that should be preserved. It may answer Patrick's question: "What does one call King George, V?" Once, as Sir Harry Lauder (I'm not sure of the spelling of that name) a famous vaudeville singer (famous for singing "Roamin' thru the Gloamin'") was leaving the theatre, he chanced to see a friend of his, a man named "George." Sir Harry called out: "Good night, George...

  • There is something about the Celts. I don't know whether it is in the genes or not, but it seems to be. That saying: "May the cat eat you, and the Devil eat the cat!" is, I think, a typical Celtic saying. It is frought with images. It is poetic. It is fierce. And, in the above instance: Final. My favorite Irish saying is: "May those who love us, love us. And those who don't love us...

  • Bless you, Theodora. I think I have said this before: You are a gentle, kind soul. Sometimes others misinterpret; sometimes, even if they don't, there's always going to be a possibility of offense. Personal styles of writing are just that. Forgive yourself. You're a good soul. ALJJ+
