to this place for relief Irom surgical and
other diseases. Such have often suffered
from the want of the various comforts
and atteniions so necessary and agreeable
to the sick, and from careless and un
faithful nurses; and been subjected to
heavy and unreasonable charges.
Invalids will here be provided with
constant, faithful and comfortable atten

To these branches nf his profession
he has given a birge share of his atten

The Hotel for Invalids h not an exper

not only as necessary to supply an evi

sick, but is warranted also by the success
of similar institutions at Cincinnati and

of Drs. Taliaferro, Marshall anil Strader
