  THE FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE HOSPITAL
  19, LISSON GROVE, LONDON, N.W.j
  This Hospital was founded in 1850 by VISCOUNTESS CANNING and organised
  by MISS FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE, who acted as the First Lady Superintendent
  before she left for the Crimea.
  Its object is to provide gratuitous medical and surgical treatment for ladies of
  limited means,. Governesses, Artists, Hospital Nurses and relatives of the Clergy,
  Naval, Military and Professional Men.
  Patients are attended by eminent Physicians and Surgeons from the Staffs of
  the leading London Hospitals.
  The income is derived from patients' fees, which vary from £2 2s. to £4 4s. per
  week, equalling about half of the total expenditure, and from investments which
  bring in about £300. The Balance of some £3,000 has to be made up by annual
  subscriptions and donations.
  Any further particulars, together with forms for admission, and the Report for the
  current year can be obtained from the Lady Superintendent at the above address.
