The death at Lenox, Massachusetts, of Mr. Henry White will

be deeply regretted in Europe as well as in the United States. Though he escaped appointment as United States Ambassador to the Court of St. James's, he was one of the best-known and popular American diplomats ever sent to London, where he was Second Secretary in 1884 and First Secretary in 1886, and again from 1897. to 1905, and our representatives were delighted to find him at the Algeciras Conference in 1906. It was hoped that as a member of the United States delegation to the Peace Conference in Paris he would have great influence with President Wilson and with the Republican party afterwards in Washington. Would that it had been so !
