The short answer is yes if enough residents complain to the authorities.

Google the following:  "Current Literature, Volume 41.  Current Literature Publishing Company 1906.  The article is on page 514.

The 2nd Battery of the Guards Rifle Artillery Division, was sent, in August, 1900, to the Far East, where the Boxer Campaign was then in progress. The Division took part in four expeditions, two in the valley of the Pei-chih-li, one in the hills and sandy steppes of Mongolia, and one in the hills of Eastern Manchuria. It covered altogether
about 2,400 miles of different sorts of country, under variations in temperature.  Most of the marches were as much as forty miles in length. The battery came into action eleven times, and fired 389 rounds at cavalry, infantry, buildings, and fortifications at ranges from point-blank to 2,500 yards.

Good evening Mr. Lowe. 

I am a long time lurker on this site and was recently reading the Ludwig & Margaret Geddes Thread when I came upon a post/reply (#107) of yours.  Your post in its entirety is below but the following comment within your post (in quotes) is what puzzles me...

"Another good one is the bio of Prince Richard Of Hesse-Kassel (brother of the head of the Hesse Royal House Landgraf Moritz) that is also in German. He was the child of Princess Malfelda of Italy who died in the war and raised by Ludwig and Margaret of Hesse."

To my knowledge, Princess Mafalda of Savoy did not have a child named Richard nor did Landgraf Moritz have a brother named Richard. Prince Richard of Hesse-Kassel was the son of Princess Margaret of Prussia (Mossy).

Could you elaborate and/or clarify six years later? 

Kind regards,  JGP

There wasn't a biography in English that dealt with Prince Ludwig and Margaret of Hesse & By Rhine. First there is one in German on the life of Margaret of Hesse that you can buy in Darmstadt or order from German booksites online.  Another good one is the the bio of Prince Richard Of Hesse-Kassel (brother of the head of the Hesse Royal House Landgraf Moritz) that is also in German. He was the child of Princess Malfelda of Italy who died in the war and raised by Ludwig and Margaret of Hesse.  In English, there is "Hessien Tavesty" that deals from Princess Alice down to Prince Ludwig & Princess Margaret. A more basic source.
