§ MR. HOWORTH (Salford. S.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs a Question of which I have given him private Notice, Whether he can relieve the general anxiety by giving a more recent and more favourable report of the condition of the health of the German Emperor than that which appeared in the newspapers of this morning?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Sir JAMES FERGUSSON) (Manchester, N.E.)
I have seen a telegram sent on authority from Berlin to-day, which states that the Emperor passed a somewhat better night; but there is no doubt that his Majesty's condition gives ground for grave anxiety, and commands deep sympathy with his family and people.
