Bulletin: Tosellis may separate

March 19, 1908

There are reports in Berlin of "trouble between the Countess Montignoso, formerly the Crown Princess of Saxony, and her pianist husband," according to the New York Times.

These reports are confirmed in a letter from the Countess to a friend of hers in London.   This friend states authoritatively that "while a divorce is not imminent there is every likelihood of a separation."

The marital problems began when the former Austrian archduchess "refused an offer tour America with her husband."

Mr. Toselli is now "filling various professional engagements on the Continent."  His wife rarely travels with him.
