by Prince Henry in appreciation of
courtesies received by him during his
'American tour,' The souvenirs which
he gave are not looked upon as gifts
bestowed by a foreign ruler within the
inhibition of the constitution,, but as
merely tokens of personal esteem and
appreciation. As a matter of fact the
gifts mentioned in the dispatches from
Berlin designed for distinguished
Americans Who participated In Prince
.Henry's reception in most cases were
presented personally by the prince be
