The fascinating obituary of countess/spy Aline Griffith, "Countess, model, jet-setter, spy, she lived for adventure" [Obituaries, Dec. 14], was accompanied by a photograph that featured Griffith standing in the foreground and her husband seated in the background. But why did the photo caption have to begin, "The Count of Romanones with his wife, Aline Griffith, the countess . . ."?
