The above is a true record of all that have died in our hospital, as before stated, making in all, ninety-three cases in one year and a half. Perhaps some may think this a pretty large amount of sickness and death so short a time, but it seems that thus it is. I have been connected with the hospital department all the time, with the exception of a few weeks. We have things very convenient at present, so that the sick are, or can be, well taken care of; and that they do have all done for them, that can be, for the place. Yours &sc. W. J. Cheney
