March 1900: Glasgow Samaritan Hospital – Annual Meeting of the Ladies’ Auxiliary Association – Promise of Surplus Proceeds from Performance of ‘Diplomacy’, by “The Players”, in April

An article on page four of The Glasgow Herald , on Tuesday the 27th of March, 1900, includes:


“GLASGOW SAMARITAN HOSPITAL.—The annual meeting of the Ladies’ Auxiliary Association

of the Glasgow Samaritan Hospital was held in the hospital yesterday. Dr Corbett presided, and

moved the adoption of the report, which was read by Mrs E. E. Anderson, the secretary. It was

considered very satisfactory, having regard to the large demands made at present on the public

purse in connection with the War Fund. The sum raised by the lady collectors was £1179 4s 11d,

and, through the kindness of ‘The Players’ Club,’ who have promised the surplus proceeds of their

performance of ‘Diplomacy’ early in April in aid of the hospital, it is expected that the above sum

will be considerably augmented.”
