|Title: ||Some account of the origin and plan of an association formed for the establishment of a house of recovery or fever hospital in the city of Dublin|
|Issue Date: ||1801 |
|Abstract: ||This particular year's reports cover the initial meeting in October 1801, an appendix which considers the experience of fever hospital's in Manchester and Waterford and finally medical testimony supporting the building of a fever hospital.
A second section deals with observations on the circumstances which generate contagion in the liberties in the south side of Dublin.
There then follows a list of donations received, the largest, being £300, coming from, the then, Lord Lieutenant, Lord Hardwicke.
Finally, a letter from a Dr. Maurice Morgan, going into some detail on the necessity for a fever hospital with many insights into the state of poorer areas of Dublin.|
