"Motor Courtship" of President Is Carried on Without the Public Knowing His Companion’s Identity
"It now transpires that ever since the President returned from Cornish he has been taking long motor rides. Persons here thought that he was driving with his cousin, Miss Helen Woodrow Bones, who did, as a matter of fact, leave the White House with him in the motor. Usually, however, she went no farther than Mrs. Galt’s home, where the President’s fiancée changed places with her and the pair of lovers went out over the hill roads of Virginia or through beautiful stretches of Maryland country. Few persons who passed the motor knew that the lady by the President’s side was not one of the White House family, for Mrs. Galt resembles in appearance Miss Bones and she usually wears black, which the ladies at the White House wore in mourning for the first Mrs. Wilson until the engagement was announced.
