This editorial3 gives, I think, the general opinion here in New York2. Certainly, the American newspapers were responsible for bringing the case to everybody's notice in England4, and for putting the lady5 in such a position that the man6 could not "give her up" even had he wanted to. He had to let himself in for trouble either way; if he placed "public usefulness and duty before private happiness" the Archbishops might have approved of him, but most of his people, young and old, would have regarded him as a cad. The woman had been so played on by searchlights that he simply couldn't turn her down. She may be a poor sort, but he doesn't think so.
It is very hard for a king to have any real friends, personal friends. He thinks she is one.With love to you W
