51 "Mabie was jolly, bouncing and very plain. Her swarthy complexion could not be blamed on the khamseen nor her shapeless figure on the fleshpots of Alexandria. Her marriage had been a 'joyous success, so why waste time in titivating the irredeemable'." Cornelios, Zenobia (Aristide) (I636)

58 "My grandparents (mother´s side) George and Helen Manousakis were both born in Crete. After their marriage they went to Djibuti (former Abessinia) where George had found work with the French Railway Company. Their two children (my mother Calliope and her brother Constantine) were born there. George died in Djibuti very young, when his children were just 6 and 4 years old so my grandmother returned to Crete as a widow with two small kids. She had great difficulties to earn a living for her family so she decided to give her children off to an Orphanage. It was the time right after the 1922 events (1923 or 1924), when the Greek authorities did everything in their power to accommodate the huge number of refugees from Turkey. Only refugee kids were accepted at the Orphanage. So my grandmother went to the authorities and declared herself and her two children as refugees from Smyrna. Of course she could not present any papers to verify her assertion but it was quite natural that people in that situation had lost everything. Anyway they believed her so she managed to get her children accepted at the Orphanage. Some years ago my brother had been searching Community records in Crete for information about our mother´s family. And he found somewhere an entry saying 'Helen Manousakis and her two children Calliope and Constantine: Refugees. Place of origin: Smyrna, Turkey'." (George Agelastos) Manousakis, Kalliope (I531)

These youths, with a younger brother, under the care of their mother, and in company with a few relatives and neighbors, escaped from the island in a small vessel, after having witenessed from a distance the devastation of the city, and after having concealed themselves for eleven days in uninhabited districts. Here they suffered from hunger, exposure, and agonizing terror; but were mercifully delivered, though a vast majority of their countrymen fell a sacrifice to the unrelenting barbarity of the Turks. In the Morea they were joined by the father, who had left Scio before them. From thence they, with much difficulty, succeeded in reaching Malta, the father remaining behind. The expense of outfit and passage of these youths to this country, was defrayed by a maternal uncle." He was studying at an academy in New Haven, CN, in 1823. Galati, Pandely (Zorzis) (I2462)

"The union proved a happy one. Capt. Negroponte recently died in Paris as the result of an operation for appendicitis.

"As soon as the now grief stricken widow's period of mourning is over she will doubtless take to herself a fourth husband. Nobody dreams of Jeanne Hugo remaining single."

84 "When Mlle. Contostavlos swings her racket Suzanne [Lenglen]'s brilliance is lacking. There is no dashing about the court, no superhuman reaching for the ball.

87 "[The French national title] will fall to either Mlle. "Didi" Penelope Vlasto or her cousin, Mlle. Helene Contostavlos. Neither is French, their parents being Greeks who have settled in Marseilles for business. But both are good tennis players, although outclassed in Suzanne's company. Neither will turn professional for there are no offers being made them. The title may fall to either or to both. In fact, there is little to choose between them and the federation got aruond a ticklish propostion in quite a tactful manner last year by rating them both second.
