Jeanne de Saint-Remy, Comtesse de la Motte, was a highly placed confidence woman whose greatest scam, the "Affair of the Diamond Necklace," sped the fall of the French monarchy. In spite of her self-serving and vengeful memoirs, published in England, most historians believe that she was guilty of the crimes of which she was convicted. The comtesse escaped to London and published her Memoirs, blaming Marie Antoinette for the whole affair; she died only five years later.

The contradictory accounts of Thomas Cresswell and Elizabeth Scrope about their relationship are more than just an example of "he said; she said" â although they do represent the genre to an extreme degree. Before the Clandestine Marriage Bill of 1753 was passed, marriage in England was legal if a couple promised to live together as man and wife, even if they had no witnesses, and even if the marriage was not consummated. Cresswell took advantage of this state of affairs on at least...

Scan of a bound volume of weekly issues of The Woman’s Column from January 1, 1898 through December 31, 1898. The book contains Volume XI No. 1-25. Note: the first three issues in the volume, dated January 1, 15, and 29, are mislabeled as 1897 though it is believed that they were actually published on those dates in 1898.
Topics: suffrage, women's rights, women's vote, equal rights, civil rights, National American Woman...
