The Lady Of The Chimes
John A. Moroso
Published in Pearson's Magazine, May 1913.
When the daughter and only child of a very rich but aging American industrialist falls for an impoverished but titled Russian, the magnate handed over a large sum of money as a dowry as well as a promise the groom would inherit it all should he survive both of them. Now the father hears of mistreatment of his daughter and the possibility her husband is trying to drive her insane. The father asks Grantham Waldron to investigate.
