Empress Friedrich takes a turn for the worse

July 31, 1901

The Empress Friedrich, mother of Kaiser Wilhelm II, is not in satisfactory condition,  according to an official announcement.   Professor Renvers visited the dowager empress earlier today at her residence, Schloss Kronberg. 
The Dowager Empress has not left her apartments for "the last few weeks," and medical bulletins have been issued, although this is expected to change.    Princess Henry of Prussia has been at Kronberg "on a flying visit."
