The Duchess of Braganza, the grandmother of Princess Marie Louise of Bourbon Parma, wife of Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria, has written a letter denying that the Prince nor his wife, "nor their son Boris will renounce the Catholic faith.
The letter was published in the Mayence Journal, according to the Berlin correspondent of the New York Times. The Journal also stated that the Prince "telegraphed a Hungarian official" at Budapest that he
will never abdicate."
