ANOTHER ROYAL CLAIMANT. "Wje (Cmrt CJimipcls) -desire to direct-especial afc tention to a letter lii another cohinin bearing the, headii fiJTrch*cd to ua by WrPoningham, Esg., the esteemed; member for Ilrightön; relative to the claims of the unfortunate Mrs. Ryves. Justice has been too long deferred towards this claimant for Royal honour^ and emoluments. and, :as:we! have carefully anci minutely investigated all the circumstances of tius remarkable case, we ca,iMiot but esrpraaa our surprise that this lady should: have: been allowed to spend her: declining years m poverty and neglect. Mrs. Olive. Serres. WTLS the. daughter of His Royal Highness the- Duke of Cumberlangh-the: brother of George III., aJJÃ Mrs. Ryves is the daughter of: Olive. Serres ;.conseS quentlythe jight; to: the possession of the title ani honours she seeks to recover ought never to have been withheld. We are aware of the difficulty that has beeg; ibrought to bear npon this case, but We believe that thes next step to be taken will be to secure adeclara-tion of the legitimacy of Mrs, Olive Serres, :which step will be. taken as soon as the funds can be provided for the necessary legal expenses. Sir Fitzroy Kelly and Dr. Phillimore have, we believe,undertaken to" conduct the appeal. To give an insight into the nature of Mrs. Ryves's claims, we will mention a singular circum- stance, which obtained extensive publicity some time since. It is recorded that her Royal Highness the late Duchess of Kent was brought with great difficulty- from the Continent to this country, just prior to the" birth of Victoria, our most gracious and belovedi Queen. The Duke of Kent..was.in great pecuniary. difficulties at the time; and it is nearly certain-that' the Sovereign of these realms would not have' been British born had it not been for Olive Serres, who' at the last .moment, and at great: personal sacrifice, advanced ..< £ 400 to his Royal Highness the Duke Kent to enable him to defray the expenses incurred by the duchess in the journey to England. Olive Serres is dead; the Duchess of Kent is also dead. The daughter of the former is now. an impoverished claimant for Royal honours; the daughter of the other occupies the grandest and mightiest throne in all the world It has recently been made known that this unfortunate lady .(far advanced in years) has been for k long tithe, and is now, in actual want of the common necessaries, of life. Should she die in this state there is but little.. doubt that then a, great outcry would be made, but, then it would be, too late. — —'J.
