From the Archives (January 2, 1919): The Kaiser’s Defenders.


The League of German men and women to protect William the Second’s personal life and security has been formed in Berlin and has issued an appeal denying that its purpose is other than is described by the League’s official name. The appeal exhorts diplomatistes and others to furnish information for the projected white book exculpating the ex-Kaiser from the guilt of the war. Prince Henry of Prussia was offered the Presidency of the League but declined saying that Hindenburg should be appointed. Prince Henry in accepting membership says that he expects to be called as a witness on behalf of his Imperial brother. The “Daily News” Munich Correspondent says that a Monarchist movement with the centre in Munich and ramifications in the country districts of Bavaria has been discovered. Forty arrests have been made including officers.
