Note 1Princess Ileana Sturdza writes: "Of course I knew Helene Cantacuzino, married to Constantin Donici. She was a very agreeable person, very cultivated and full of fantasy. She died at 80 in Puciora, a small town not far from Targoviste...
Note 2“... She had become a very popular and able teacher of English and French to children and students whom she pulled through their classes up to university. The local authorities had a great respect for her and she was always provided with excellent food...
Note 3“... I used to come for the weekend in Puciora where she had passed through great difficulties until she started using her knowledge of foreign languages."
