The Queen Regent of Spain has addressed a touching letter to Senora Canovas in her bereavement. Her Majesty says that the eminent services Senor Canovas rendered to her husband, Alfonso XII. entitled him to all her respect, and the latter sacrifices which he made for the Throne bound him closely to her.
