Prince Waldemar ill

December 6, 1898

Prince Waldemar, the eldest son of Prince and Princess Henry of Prussia, "was recently attacked by a serious throat trouble," according to a special dispatch from Berlin to the New York Times.  A specialist was summoned to treat the young prince.  The doctor decided "that an operation was necessary," and "this has been successfully performed."

Prince Waldemar is nine years old.
