Miss Marguerite Hdye Leiter, popularly known as „Daisy,“ the youngest and only unmarried daughter of Levi Z. Leiter, was married in 1904, to to Henry Mollneaux Page Howard, nineteenth Earl of Suffolk and Berkshire. Miss Leiter is the third daughter of the house to contract a marriage with a noble family of England. Her eldest sister, who was Miss Mary, married Lord Curzon, Viceroy of India.
Her other sister, Miss Nancy, married Major Colin Campbell, a cousin of the Duke of Argyle, on November 29 last. Miss Leiter never looked lovelier than in her soft clinging gown of Libertin satin, veiled with exquisite point de Venice lace, over which fell her tulle veil, held In place by a tiara of diamonds. This tiara is one of the handsomest jewels of a rare collection of family heirlooms, which the Earl presented to his bride, probably the gemset tiara above.
A long rope of pearls, the favourite Jewel of the bride and which was the gift of her mother, was worn around her throat. She carried a graceful, loose cluster of white orchids and roses.
