Duke of Clarence's condition improves

January 11, 1892

The Duke of Clarence, eldest son of the Prince and Princess of Wales, is said to be improving, according to the latest bulletin from Sandringham.  The Duke, who is suffering from influenza and pneumonia, "passed a good night," according to the New York Times.

Dr. Laking, who was called from London to "attend the Duke," is in "constant attendance upon his patient."  He said that the Duke's condition is better, his temperature is lower, and believes "there is no cause for alarm."

No further bulletins will be issued.
