5 Cards in this Set

Barbara

The love child of Mrs. Ansley and Delphin Slade who was conceived during a midnight rendezvous in the Colosseum. She is vivacious and beautiful, and has caught the eye of an Italian aviator.

Jenny

Mrs. Slade and Delphin Slade's legitimate daughter. Pretty and well-mannered, but safe and lacking her friend Barbara's dynamism.

Mrs. Ansley

An American society woman and mother to Barbara, who is actually the result of Mrs. Ansley's secret affair with Delphin Slade. She is quiet and pensive, and while she does not want to start trouble with Mrs. Slade, her friend's cattiness and spite lead her to confess that Barbara is Delphin's daughter

Delphin Slade

Mrs. Slade's late husband who had a rendezvous with Mrs. Ansley many years ago in Rome and is thus the biological father of Mrs. Ansley's daughter.

Mrs. Slade

An American society woman, the widow of famous lawyer Delphin Slade, and mother to Jenny. She is proud and rather catty. She delights in shattering her friend Mrs. Ansley's belief that Delphin wrote her a romantic letter decades ago, but her overt rivalry leads to the revelation that Delphin actually fathered Mrs. Ansley's daughter.
