A son for the Duchess of York

December 14, 1895

The Duchess of York gave birth to a son at York House, Sandringham, this morning.  The New York Times reports that "mother and child are well."

This is the second child for the Duke and Duchess of York.  In June 1894,  the Duchess gave birth to Prince Edward, who is third in line to the throne.  The new prince, whose name was not announced, is fourth in line.
