The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 84



The Sub-Committee continue to meet every alternate Monday. Over 100 people have been relieved during times of poverty or sickness. The following cases will serve for examples :—
(a.)Father and two children suffering from typhoid fever; mother lately confined; six occupying one room. Milk and nourishing food were given until the parents recovered their health.
(b.)Father down with typhoid fever, no bed to lie on; furniture all sold to procure food. A bed was provided by the Dorcas Branch, and substantial relief given.
(c.)Husband had been for a time in the Asylum; six children; very destitute. Clothes and food were supplied.

Many similar cases could be mentioned, but these are sufficient to give an idea of the suffering and destitution which the Association seeks to alleviate, so far as it is able.
