Alexandra not well

November 18, 1903

Empress Alexandra of Russia is "suffering from inflammation of one her ears," and is unable to travel, reports the Los Angeles Times.  Thus, she and her husband, Nicholas II, will not be able to attend the funeral of the Empress' niece, Princess Elisabeth, who died at Skierniewice, Russian Poland on Monday.

The young princess is the only daughter of  Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig of Hesse and By Rhine and his former wife, Victoria Melita.
