This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1888 edition. Excerpt: ...adjoining building was laid by Mr. Pulteney, afterwards Earl of Bath. Since the Hospital was opened for the reception of patients in 1742, 39,137 persons have been received within its walls, of whom 11,535 nave been restored to their homes cured, and 19,293 relieved. With such abundant evidences of the wonderful virtues and efficacy of the Bath Waters in curing many diseases for which ordinary medical treatment might have been sought in vain, it was natural that the Governors should consider it their bounden duty to take advantage of the earliest opportunity that presented itself for enlarging and improving the Hospital.

We have to-day commenced the great work of erecting the new building, and we look forward to its completion as a means of supplying the deficiencies of the present contracted building, and of providing accommodation for patients during the day-time (the want of which has long been felt), a chapel, board-room, and apartments, and new offices for the officials of the institution. I take this opportunity of stating that the present building will be converted into a dormitory for the inmates, and when re-arranged, not only will the comforts of the patients be increased, but we shall be able to provide twenty additional beds, which, if public liberality will enable us to fill them, will allow of nearly one hundred more patients being passed through the Hospital in the course of a year than can be done at present. Let us hope that the work which has this day been so auspiciously inaugurated...
