Appeal on behalf of the Hospital of St. John and St. Elizabeth, by Rex Palmer
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Rex Palmer, Esq., [address removed]
The Hospital of St. John and St. Elizabeth in St. John's Wood, London, celebrates its centenary next year. Founded in Great Ormond Street, it was placed under the care of the Sisters of Mercy, four of whom had been nurses in the Crimea with Florence Nightingale. In 1898 the hospital was transferred to St. John's Wood. St. John and St. Elizabeth is a general hospital. Equipped with 175 beds, it admitted a record total of 2,578 patients during its last financial year. Since the hospital is not state-controlled, it is mainly dependent on voluntary subscriptions. The hospital's need of support is very great indeed, especially when it is remembered that those who cannot afford to pay receive their treatment free.

3-Reynolds and Detachment
Sir Joshua Reynolds 's discourses to students of the Royal Academy express a doctrine which he himself never followed. Young painters, he said, were to study and imitate the antique and the historical, however wearisome this might seem at first, and thus avoid the vulgarity of the faithful portrait. Dr. Pevsner, finds the discrepancy between precept and practice profoundly English.
These lectures will be printed in ' The Listener '
