Princess Louise is ill

February 28, 1924

Princess Louise of Belgium is "seriously ill at Wiesbaden," according to a dispatch from the Associated Press.  The Princess, a daughter of the late King Leopold II, is 66 years old.  Her "fine constitution still permits hope for recovery," it is said. 

But her doctors "fear she will not survive" due to her advanced age and her "grief over the recent death" of Count Mattasich.

The Belgian court has been informed.  Her daughter, Dorothea, Duchess of Schleswig-Holstein, has been summoned to her mother's bedside.
