Description

War sketches, by our special artists. The Princess of Roumania's Hospital at Bucharest: - two of our artists visiting the hospital. Roumanian war hospitals.Two of our Special Artists at the War, Herr Schönberg and Mr. Irving Montagu, have together visited the military hospital at Bucharest which has been established and is managed and personally superintended by the Princess of Roumania. Her Serene Highness Elizabeth, wife of Prince Charles of Hohenzollern, the reigning sovereign of that country and commander of its army in the field, is a German lady, a daughter of the late Prince Hermann of Wied, and is in the thirty-fourth year of her age. She is greatly beloved and revered by the Roumanian people; and her selfdenying efforts and labours to mitigate the sufferings of the wounded soldiers brought to the capital have increased their admiration for her. In the preceding one of our artists' two sketches of this hospital she is represented in the act of graciously receiving their visit, accompanied by two ladies of her household, and by the Dutch Consul at Bucharest, who stands behind the small table at the left hand of the Princess. Several of the patients, lying in their beds to the right and left, one taking a few spoonfuls of broth from the nurse's hand, show the reality of the humane work carried on in this institution. … "--Illustrated London news, loc. cit.
