Under the Patronage of

Her Majesty the QUEEN, and
His Royal Highness Prince ALBERT, K.G., &c.
President--The Right Hon. the Earl of CARLISLE.

Treasurer-H. Edmund Gurney, Esq. It having been determined, notwithstanding the heavy liabilities incurred for the completion and furnishing of the building, to open the Nes Hospital at the Victoria Park on the 7th March, the friends of the Charity and the benevolent public are earnestly entreated to AID the Committee in the accomplishment of this object with their kind and liberal support.

This decision has been come to under a deep conviction of the urgent necessity which exists for the immediate reception of in-patients, and the Committee trust, therefore, in their endeavour to open the wards at this early period, to be sustained by the cordial and active co-operation of the public.

The number of out-patients relieved at the Institution is very large, and as the means at the disposal of the Committee are quite inadequate to the extended relief now afforded, they are constrained urgently to APPEAL for further ASSISTANCE. Out-patients relieved during the last week, 643.

The Committee have the pleasure to announce that a Public Festival, to commemorate the opening of the New Hospital, will be held at the London Tavern on Wednesday, the 7th March next, and that the Right Hon. the Earl of Carlisle, the President of the Institution, has kindly intimated his intention to take the chair on the occasion.

Donations and subscriptions will be thankfully received by the Treasurer, H. E. Gurney, Esq., at 65, Lombard-street; the Bankers, Messrs. Barclay & Co., Messrs. Coutts & Co., and Messrs. Ransom & Co.; by the Hon. Secretary, 51, Old Broad-street; and by the Secretary, at the Ollice, 6, Liverpool-street, Finsbury.
