Duke of Buccleuch is "seriously ill"

October 17, 1935

The Associated Press is reporting that the Duke of Buccluech, father of Lady Alice Montagu-Douglas-Scott, fiancee of the Duke of Gloucester, "is seriously ill."

The Duke has been in poor health since an operation about a year ago, but his condition is now considered to be grave.  A bulletin issued from his home, Bowhill, in Selkirk, Scotland, states that his "condition is giving rise to serious anxiety."

Lady Alice and the Duke of Gloucester are planning to marry on November 6 at Westminster Abbey.
