Bulletin: Duke of Clarence "very ill"

January 10, 1892


The Duke of Clarence, elder son of the Prince and Princess of Wales, is "seriously ill" at Sandringham.  He is "suffering from a severe attack of influenza, complicated with pneumonia," reports the New York Times.

The latest reports from Sandringham indicate that the "patient has so far maintained his strength well."

All of the Duke of Clarence's engagements have been canceled.  The Prince of Wales has also announced that "on account of the illness of his son," he is unable to leave Sandringham "to keep his engagements in London."
