YALE LOCK. In The Song of the LarkDoctor Howard Archie has a Yale lock on the cabinet that holds his whiskey, and in My Ántonia the miserly Wick Cutter installs a Yale lock on his door. Linus Yale, Jr., invented the enormously popular flat key lock in 1861. The name Yale lock was soon used to refer to other locks with flat keys not made by Yale. N: MA II, 15; N: SoL I, 1

YANKEE GIRL MINE. A mine in which Otto Fuchs and Jake Marpole, farmhands of the Burdens in My Ántonia, work after leaving the Burdens. Whether or not there was an actual mine by that name has not been clearly established. N: MA II, 1

YARMOUTH, DUCHESS OF. Amalie Sophie Marianne von Wallmoden, the Countess of Yarmouth and the mistress of George II, was born at Hanover, Germany, in 1704 and died there in 1765. The portrait of the woman holding the white lily in Lord Fairfax's library ( "A Night at Greenway Court") likely depicts the Duchess of Yarmouth. The blonde and sprightly wife of Gottlieb Adam von Wallmoden, she attracted the attention of George II during his visit to Hanover in the summer of 1735. The ailing Queen Caroline knew of the alliance and encouraged it. In June 1738, after the proper period of mourning for Caroline's death had passed, Frau Wallmoden was brought from Hanover to London and installed in Saint James's Palace. Divorced from her husband in 1739, she was made Countess of Yarmouth in 1740, but she did not meddle in politics or participate in court intrigues. She kept the affections of the king until his death in 1760, after which she returned to Hanover. The paternity of her youngest son, Johann Ludwig (called John Louis), is doubtful, though he was born in 1736, before his mother was divorced. He was brought up at the English court and was said to be the son of the king, but he was never recognized as such. S:Ni

YELLOW BOOK.
