Bostwick's cousin Francis Francis, on the other hand, built a magnificent chalet in Switzerland outfitted in the ultimate modern style by Jansen.

Francis Francis? What cruel parents.

Bostwick seems so sad.....

"Both Sabin and his wife were ardent anti-prohibitionists, his wife being chairman of the Women's National Association for Prohibition Reform."

I like them already. Also love the photo. They look so graceful and exquisitely dressed. Check out Mrs. Sabin's wrap, as well as that well-turned ankle.

I've always like what I've read of Mrs. Sabin---talented decorator, political activist, anti-prohibition, and man, she's quite stylish there---none of that Helen Hokinson style for her.

As befits the owner of one of the most stylish estates of the 20's.
