Empress Friedrich's condition

July 6, 1901

Prince and Princess Henry of Prussia arrived earlier today at Schloss Kronberg where they visited the Prince's mother, Empress Friedrich.  Her condition is "not so satisfactory," according to the New York Times.  During the last several days, she has "suffered from severe pains, which have prevented her usual drives."

The Empress, the eldest child of the late Queen Victoria, spends most of her day "on the castle terrace or under a tent on the lawn."
