Although Jim Burden and I both live in New York, and are old friends, I do not see much of him there. He is legal counsel for One of the great Western railways, and is sometimes awayr from his New York Office for weeks together. That is one reason why we do not Often meet. Another is that I do not like his wife.
When Jim was still an Obscure young lawyer, struggling to make his way in New York, his career was suddenly advanced by a brilliant marriage. Genevieve Whitney was the only daughter of a distinguished man. Her marriage with young Burden was the subjectof sharp comment at the time. It was said she had been brutally jilted by her cousin, Rutland Whitney, and that she married this unknown man from the West out of bravado. She was a restless, headstrong girl, even then, who liked to aston ish her friends. Later, when I knew her, she was always doing something unexpected. She gave one of her town houses for a Su?'rage head quarters, produced one Of her own plays at the Princess Theater, was arrested for picketing during a garment-makers' strike, etc. I am never able to believe that she has much feeling for the causes to which she lends her name and her ?eeting interest. She is handsome, energetic.
