[Elisabeth of Romania] - Hane, Howard Spencer, theologian (fl. 1950s). Typed letter signed.

Cambridge, Massachusetts, 19. XI. 1956.

Folio. ¾ page. With typed address (folded air mail).


To Marquis Marc de Favrat, offering a requiem mass for the soul of the deceased Princess Elisabeth of Romania, the former Queen of Greece: "I am doing this partly out of the friendship which I have for her sister, the Princess Ileana, and I thought that you would like to know that his Requiem was being offered. May I express to you my very sincere condolences on the death of one so dear to you [...]".

Elisabeth of Romania (1894-1956) settled in Cannes some years after her expulsion from Romania in 1947, when the Romanian People's Republic was proclaimed. In France, she met the much younger aspiring artist Marc Favrat, who became her lover, whom she made her equerry and adopted in the year of her death.
