to the hospital before its completion and had been there 10 months.
We have been asked by the New York Public Library and
others for Volume I, Number 1, of our Bulletin of which we 0111*-
selves have only one copy on file. If any reader happens to have .
1 kept this number will he please send it to the Frontier Nursing I
Service, Wendover, Leslie county, Kentucky?
