I. The Western Infirmary has 400 beds, and a Dispensary for the treatment of out-door
II. During the year (ending 31st October, 1897) 48,930 visits were made to the Dispensary
by out-door patients. The number of patients treated in the wards was 4548.
The cost for maintenance during the past year was £21,878 4s. 3d.; and as the ordinary income
from all sources during the same period was only £18,742 16s. Id. the necessity for new and
increased support will readily be seen. The liberal spirit, however, in which all classes of the
community have hitherto supported the Institution gives the Managers confidence in believe
ing that the appeal which they now make will meet with a prompt and generous response.
III. The Managers take the liberty of drawing attention to the subjoined Form of Bequest, in
the hope that from this source they may be enabled gradually to accumulate a special fund from
the investment of which, in so far as it is not required for contingencies, a considerable sup-
plementary revenue may in time be derived.
Note. — There are already 20 beds endowed in perpetuity, most of them in name of deceased
relatives whose names the donors desire to associate with the relief of suffering. The sum
required for endowment of a bed is the capital sum necessary to produce £50 per annum.
I of do hereby leave to the Western
Infirmary of Glasgow, free of legacy duty and charges, a Legacy of* pounds
sterling, which I authorise and direct my Executors to pay to the Treasurer or Secretary thereof for the
time being, opon his receipt, which shall be a sufficient discharge.
Dated at Glasgow, this* day of Eighteen Hundred and
Ninety years.
