Wilhelm II hates Catholicism

March 20, 1914

German Emperor Wilhelm II's letter to a cousin who converted to Catholicism, is "attracting much attention in the press," reports the New York Times.

The letter was written by the Emperor to the Landgravine of Hesse, who was Princess Anna of Prussia before her marriage, who converted to Roman Catholicism on October 9, 1901

A local Catholic newspaper "asserts" that the letter included the phrase: "I hate the religion which you have adopted."

The letter was discovered among the papers of the late Cardinal Kopp.
