: While trying to understand, after reading your
: post, if I had made some confusion I
: realized that both Sir Reed and Lord Dawson
: were physicians of the BRF and of the PRF.
: Because of the same illness, but in
: different days, both were consulted by
: D.Manuel II.
: However, in the fateful day, of both
: doctors, only Sir Reed was consulted.
: According to the bibliography I have, it was
: he (Sir Reed) and not Lord Dawson who was
: dismissed of both Households.
: Lord Dawson, as you noticed, was pretty much
: in function when King George V died in 1936.
: When D.Manuel II dies, D.Augusta sends a
: telegram to D.Amelia saying her son was very
: ill. Queen D.Augusta was trying to smooth
: the truth because she was afraid to cause
: some damage to the health of her
: mother-in-law with such hard notice. When
: the telegram was being delivered to D.Amelia
: (in France) and before it was opened, the
: old queen said “Je sais, mon fils est
: mort!”. Quite strange, amazing and creepy at
: the same time!

: Interesting story of which I had no idea.
: I am a bit confused about your point 6, but
: maybe I'm reading it the wrong way: Lord
: Dawson may have been dismissed from the
: royal houshold of Fulwell Park, but
: certainly not by the british royal house. He
: was still very much in function at the
: deathbed of King George V.
: Arriving home, the pain increases and he
: ordered the physician Lord Dawson to be
: called. Strangely the doctor only (?)
: recommends absolute rest and the
: cancellation of all appointments. The
: clinical situation became increasingly worst
: and the king starts to have some
: difficulties to talk;
: 6. D.Manuel II dies with edema of glottis.
: Shortly after the kingâ€™s last breath Sir
: Reed arrives, only to sign the death
: certificate. The Doctor was also doctor of
: BRF and was immediately dismissed.
