August 27, 1908

The Dutch newspaper, The Telegraaf, published the following today: "It is learned that Queen Wilhelmina's health is good, and it is probable that a communication shortly will be made which will cause public joy." This dispatch was sent by cable to the Chicago Daily Tribune.
Queen Wilhelmina is enciente, and is enjoying good health. An heir to the Dutch throne "is expected to arrive shortly from the realm of the stork."
