King of Saxony tries to get the public on his side

March 17, 1903

The Associated Press today published a letter from the King of Saxony to his subjects regarding the situation with Crown Princess Louise. The King's letter is an effort to thank his subjects for their support for the "recent sad misfortune" that has affected the Saxon royal family.
The King hopes that the "perturbation and excitement which seized on the people in consequence of the distressing events of last winter will now give place to quietude, and the old feeling of confidence."
He also begs his people to not believe Louise. "...that behind all the miserable business lies a tissue of falsehood and deception, but to believe the word of your king that this infinitely painful affair arose solely from the ungovernable passion of a young woman."
