My Lord,

The past week has been uneventful except for the visit

of Sir Herbert and Lady Perrott who left us on Saturday.

They were able to see the work of the hospital in all

its branches, from the taking in of a convoy of patients to the

evacuation, and will be able to give a full and particular account

to the Order.

The health of the personnel is good. Mrs. Stewart, one

of the trained Sisters proceeds home on Saturday having been

permitted to terminate her engagement as she does not feel strong

enough for the work, and the other Sister comes out to take her

place.

The accounts of the hospital, made up to the 20th inst.

as asked for by Mr. Edwards, are being forwarded today.

 

I have the honour to be,

Your Lordships

Obedient servant,

James Clark
