FAMOUS CITY CHARITY HIT BY EVACUATION May Have to Close Its Doors

From a Special Correspondent

Owing to lack of funds the well-known Farringdon General Dispensary in Bartletba Buildings, near Holborn Circus, may have to restrict its influence or even close down altogether.

The Dispensary, which was founded in 1828, gives medical and surgical relief to the poor, and in particular helps to secure competent attendance to poor women at childbirth.

Famous Harley-street surgeons and doctors give much of their time to free attendance and assistance for the city poor.

The removal of so many. City firms to safe areas has sadly reduced the finances of this noble charity. Hitherto, a large number of firms have taken advantage of the offer to employers of recommendation of twelve ordinary patients and two midwifery cases for the fee of £1 Is.

The loss of this institution would be a grave blow to the City's poor, and anybody interested should communicate soon with the secretary at the Dispensary, 17, Fiartletts' Buildings, Holborn Circus, E.C.4.
