Don Jaime: mute

April 25, 1912

Infante Jaime, second son of King Alfonso XIII and Queen Victoria Eugenia of Spain, remains in Fribourg, Switzerland, under the care of Dr. Reymond.  The New York Times reports that Don Jaime, who was born June 22, 1908, will be "deaf and dumb for life." 

The child has suffered from a "chronic complaint in the nose and throat, and in the last few months, "has undergone two operations."
