In 1882 the Sisters of the Poor of St. Francis inaugurated the use
of their new St. Joseph's Hospital ; ten years later another Catholic
hospital was established at Spuyten Duyvil Heights, called the Seton
Hospital for Consumptives, already mentioned. Both of these institu-
tions are well built and well sustained. To the Mt, Sinai Hospital a
handsome dispensary was annexed in 1890. In 1885 an emergency
hospital, governed now by the Department of Public Charities, was
established at Gouverneur Slip, on the East River. For the treatment
of dangerous contagious diseases in the population of the city, was built
in 1884 the Riverside Hospital, on North Brother Island. Thither are
sent also cases from quarantine ; and, for temporary service of patients
awaiting transportation, a reception hospital was erected in 1885.

For the special care of scarlet fever and diphtheria among the poor,
the Willard Parker Hospital, on the East River at Sixteenth Street, was
established in 1884; the great need for a similar establishment for
patients of a better equipped purse has led to the consideration of
another hospital for their use, to secure which Mrs. Minturn has taken
the initiative.

Lebanon Hospital, occupying the old Ursuline Convent in We>t-
chester, was started in 1891. To the Hahnemann Homoeopathic Hos-
pital substantial additions have been made within recent years. A
small, well-kept hospital is St. Mark's, in Second Avenue, founded in
1890, and supported by voluntary offerings. In the same year the


Woman's Medical College of the New York Infirmary took possession
of its premises in Stuyvesant Square. The Laura Franklin Five Hospital
is a homoeopathic institution for children, established in 1886, under
charge of a Protestant Episcopal Sisterhood. In ix'.tn tin- old estab-
lished Xew York Eye and E;ir Infirmary added a new wing to the
buildings it had before occupied. The New Amsterdam Eye and Ear
Hospital, in West Thirty-eighth Street, was opened in l.s

Two other important additions in late years to the city's list are the
Xew York Skin and Cancer Hospital, for free service of the poor, and
the Xew York Cancer Hospital, the latter representing a benefaction of
the late Mrs. J. J. Astor. This fine, spacious, and beautifully mounted
establishment combines all the best arrangements and facilities of the
present day for the comfort of those to be served, and is intended chiefly
for the free treatment of needy patients, though sufferers who can pay
are also received and cared for. In 1888 St. Bartholomew's Hospital
was established for free treatment of diseases of the skin. In 1892 the
Protestant Episcopal Church in Xew York instituted a church dispensary
for the immediate purpose of supplying medical aid and remedies to such
worthy indigent people as can be discovered, who may be unwilling to
apply to a general dispensary.

To further enumerate the hospitals, church associations, dispensaries,
sanitariums, homes, aid societies and diet kitchens opened of late years
in various portions of Manhattan Island, and all now in active service
to. the needy, is impossible here. Enough has been stated to show that
New York is not only alert but eager in the cause of the health and phy-
sical welfare of her great population. An average of seventy-five thou-
sand patients are thus here treated annually free of charge, who receive
all that the utmost efforts of the best skill allow the wealthy patient to
command in his own home. Good beds, pure air, the latest surgical
appliances, the best drugs, admirably trained nurses, the foremost phy-
sicians and surgeons of the day, aided by young recruits from among
the most efficient and distinguished of recent graduates of the best
medical schools, all are freely supplied to the poorest applicant at the
gates of a great hospital, or at the door of either of many small ones
This is an inspiring thought, and a just occasion for proud comfort to the
citizen who has at heart real civilization in the metropolis. Such insti-
tutions seem to render unnecessary the special, hospitals founded for and
maintained by Germans, Frenchmen, Swiss, Norwegians, and others in
Xew York of alien birth, - though the spirit that prompts to such pro-
visions by foreigners for their own countrymen deserves all praise. Cer-
tainly the immigrant who sees his vessel drop anchor under the beacon
VOL. ii. 55


of Bartholdi's light has nothing to complain (if in the arrangements made,
whether by his compatriots or by our own citizens, for the care of his
health upon or after arrival.

Our tale now told, - although leaving much unsaid, - we commend
to the reader a glance backward from the picture it presents to that of
the little savage island clasped in the embrace of two great rivers, as
described in the opening paragraph of Mrs. Lamb's History. What
further development the years of the coming century may see New
York attain, if measured by her achievement in the recent past, must
surely satisfy the highest ambition of her citizens, and secure to their
children the best rewards of modern civilized life.
