Dutch queen very ill

April 17, 1902

Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands is suffering from peritonitis, according to a New York Times report.  The Queen's condition is "hourly growing more serious."

She has been seen by several physicians.  An official bulletin was released this morning:  "Queen Wilhelmina has been indisposed for some days.  Her Majesty keeps to her bed and experiences a feeling of general lassitude. There is an increase in her temperature."
