and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and
ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye
took me in: naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me”-for “Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto Me*.”

Note B. p. 11. Not only have the heavy expences of erecting and furnishing the Hospital for general purposes been incurred during the preceding and part of the present year; but within the last three months, a FEVER WARD, separate from the rest of the building, and capable of holding twelve patients, has also been completed.—Three patients have already been admitted into it: and when it is considered, that the immediate removal of these persons from their respective places of abode, has not only brought them within the reach of the most valuable professional aid, but may have prevented the spread of contagion throughout a thickly populated district, it is impossible not to see the immense advantages which must result from this department of the Institution.
A fresh and most powerful claim is hereby presented to the notice of the Visitors and Inhabitants of Brighton : and a claim, which, we are satisfied, will not be unheeded by them.
We would add in conclusion, that which must be highly gratifying to all who take an interest in the permanency of the Institution, to learn that the Committee of Management have already invested in the names of the Trustees, bene. factions to the amount of £4467. 15s. to be held inviolable for the benefit of posterity.
