(A list of stewards follows)

This useful charity has been established over three quarters of a century. Its importance to the suffering poor of both sexes and all ages may be gathered from the fact that 435,749 have been already relieved (9,311 in 1887.) The proportion of aggravated cases to simple cases is larger than it was formerly; hence more expensive instruments are required, greater cost is entailed, and increased funds are needed.

Subscriptions and donations in aid will be thankfully received by any of the above stewards, or by the Secretary at the Institution, 35 Finsbury Square.

May 23rd, 1888
John Whittington, Secretary.
