Qne of the richest as well as one of the most lavish hostesses in London, Mrs. Bradley Martin is exceedingly popular in society. Many brilliant entertainments are held at her house in Chesterfield Gardens, and the names of Melba, Plancon, and Caruso have appeared on the programmes of her concerts. If there is one thing more than another, however, in which Mrs. Bradley Martin delights, it is to surround herself with young people and to give them the best of good times. She is devoted to her grandson, Lord Uffington, heir to the Earl of Craven, whom her only daughter, Cornelia, married in 1893. Mrs. Bradley Martin is an American, being the daughter of Isaac Sherman, of New York City. Her husband is well-knowri in the sporting world on both sides of the Atlantic. Mrs. Martin is the possessor of some of the most beautiful jewels in the world, a portion of the French Crown jewels having been purchased some years ago by Mr. Bradley Martin at the time the Republican Government saw fit to sell these historic relics.
