Duke of the Abruzzi buys jewels, gets ready to sail

October 16, 1908

The New York Times is reporting that the Duke of the Abruzzi "will shortly leave for the United States," confirming what others have reported, but the duke's household are "exercising reserve in connection with the trip."

The Duke recently went shopping for jewelery, and purchased a number of pieces, and apparently "has left additional orders with the jewelers to be fulfilled."

The assumption is that these jewels will be wedding presents for Miss Katherine Elkins.
