t LORD SALISBURY. I ANXIETY AT HATFIELD. Although the circumstances of Lord Salisbury's illness were not such as to warrant confidence of ultimate complete recovery, Sunday night's bulletin was the most favourable that had been issued. The King first heard of the illness of the ex-Premier on Saturday, and at once sent a sympathetic message to Hatfield, and late on Saturday night received at Marienbad a telegram from Viscount Cranborne thanking him for his kind message, and informing him that Lord Salisbury was "very ill," but that Sir Douglas Powell had just reported him to be slightly stronger after a restful night. This report was issued on the authority of Sir Douglas Powell after consultation with Dr. Lovell Drage and Dr. Walker, Lord Salisbury's London attendant, who had hurried back to London on hearing of his distinguished patient's condition. Throughout Saturday night the improved conditions were maintained, and on Sunday morning an informal bulletin was issued on the authority of his lordship's family record- ing another restful night and added strength. It was not found necessary to send for Sir Douglas Powell or Mr. Walker on Sunday. At half-past six that evening the following authorised statement was issued:- "His lordship has had a good day and is decidedly stronger.38 I A RESTFUL DAY. The following official bulletin was issued %t Hatfield House soon after half-past six on Mondav evening :—"Lord Salisbury has had Z;, good day, and there is no material change." z, This report marked some slight improvement in Lord Salisbury's condition during the day, as the morning bulletin had spoken or a restless night, which fortunately was not attended by any observable diminution of strength. During the day messages were received in great number. The King, the Queen, the Prince of Wales, and the Viceroy of India, made inquiry by telegram as to Lord Salisbury's progress. Shortly before 10 o'clock on Monday night it was stated at Hatfield House that the more favourable symptoms were maintained, that Lord Salisbury had passed an altogether more restful day, had had more sleep, and appeared in 'on sequence to have gained slightly in strength. I "NO MARKED CHANGE." There was, up to late on Tuesday night, no change to record in Lord Salisbury's condition, and with the exception of Sunday's slight rest- lessness, counteracted, however, by Monday's welcome repose, it may be fairly said that the first three days of the week constituted almost a stationary period. During Monday night the patient slept much better. Dr. Walker again remained in attendance at Hatfield House, and left for London at 9.30 on Tuesday morning. A little later Dr. Lovell Drage also left Hat- field, so it was clear that no immediate develop- ments were anticipated. Sir Douglas Powell travelled down from London on Tuesday after- noon, and left again scon after six o'clock, hav- ing paid a somewhat brief visit. About 6.30 the following bulletin was issued There is no marked change in his lord- ship's condition. After the issue of the bulletin Dr. Walker went for a ride with Lord Robert Cecil in the latter's motor-car. The Countess of Selborne left Hatfield for London by the 8.48 p.m. train on Tuesday. Her ladyship stated that her father seemed slightly stronger, but there was no important change, and the doctors did not Z71 anticipate any early development of his lo1* ship's illness.
