Appeal on behalf of the Gardeners' Royal Benevolent Institution, by Fred Streeter
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Fred Streeter , Esq., The Gardeners' Royal Benevolent Institution, [address removed]
The Gardeners' Royal Benevolent Institution was founded in 1839 to help aged and disabled gardeners, market gardeners, nurserymen, and seedsmen, by means of pensions and grants, and to give similar assistance to their widows. At the present time there are 235 pensioners or widows on the pension list.
In 1952 a country home was opened at Horton in Buckinghamshire, where after retirement gardeners and their wives, single gardeners, and widows of gardeners may spend the remainder of their lives in security. The home also has a hospital annexe.
Funds are urgently needed to enable the work to be continued and expanded.

When Edmond Dantes took over the command of the Pharaon on the captain's death at sea, he unwittingly also took over a secret letter from Napoleon on Elba to the Bonapartists in Paris.
Back in port at Marseilles his rival Danglars, who wants the captaincy for himself, induces Fernand Mondego, a fisherman in love with Edmond's betrothed Mercedes, to deliver a note betraying Edmond, who is arrested at his betrothal feast.
Gerard de Villefort, the procureur du roi at Marseilles, is about to release Edmond, but when he learns the name of the Bonapartist to whom the letter was to be given he sends Edmond to the terrible island prison of the Chateau d'lf.
