Christmas Feast at City Hospital in 1890

At the City Hospital Mrs. Patrick Mosley, the kind and efficient matron at the city hospital, did the handsome thing for her patients at that institution yesterday. About two o'clock in the afternoon, those who were able to, assembled in the dining hall and were seated at a table laden with the choicest delicacies, and it is unnecessary to state that the feast was relished heartily, for the dinner was prepared under the personal supervision of the matron. The bed-ridden patients also received their shares of the good things, and merry Christmas, even at the hospital, will long be remembered by the inmates.
