Lady Harriet Jephson

Altheim, Germany

Altheim, Germany

Such an amusing thing has happened. Mr. S—— said to Dr. ——, “We English have captured your Kronprinzessin Cecilie,” without saying that he meant the ship, and not the lady. As the Government keeps all such disagreeable intelligence dark, it was news to the doctor, and he stoutly contradicted it, and went round the town afterwards telling people: “Just think what liars the English are; they say they have captured our Crown Princess!” We learnt of this prize-taking from the (Italian newspaper) “Corriere della Sera.”
