A bride for Alfonso

March 25, 1905

By cable to the Chicago Daily Tribune

Madrid's correspondent to the London Daily Mail says it is "reliably stated that the preliminary negotiations for the marriage of Princess Patricia, duaghter of the Duke of Connaught, and King Alfonso were formally opened." 

The report further states that "well-informed courtiers" believe that the marital negotiations "are almost certain to succeed."

Princess Patricia is the youngest of three children of the Duke and Duchess of Connaught.  Her older sister, Princess Margaret, is engaged to marry Hereditary Prince Gustaf Adolf of Sweden later this year.
