DORSET COUNTY HOSPITAL.

To the Editor of THE LANCET.

SIR,–In-patients of this hospital are refused the privilege of perusing the books which they may obtain on application to the minister of the congregation to which they belong. Is the exclusive principle acted upon in the hospitals of London? That is to say, are the medical charitable institutions in the metropolis administered in an uncharitable spirit?  I am, Sir, your obedient servant, W. SMITH (Dissenting Minister). Dorchester, Dec. 8, 1841.

[Comment from The Lancet editor] Such disgusting illiberality is unknown in the medical charities of London. We had thought that such disreputable, narrow-minded sectarianism was exhibited in no part of England in the present century.  The tyranny is a disgrace to the establishment in which it has occurred.–ED. L.

The Lancet, 29 September 1860, vol. 2, page 316

OCCURRENCE OF SYPHILIS IN CHILDHOOD.

To the Editor of THE LANCET. 

SIR,–Seeing in your impression of last week the report of a case of “Well-marked Syphilis in a Female Child, aged ten years,” I am induced to send you a somewhat similar case, which occurred two years ago in the Dorset County Hospital during my house-surgeoncy:–A girl, aged thirteen, was admitted with ulceration and swelling of the labiae (said to have been of four months’ duration), together with psoriasis and ulceration of the throat; the latter symptoms had not existed so long, by the mother’s account, as the former. As the swelling decreased, the hymen was found to be quite intact. No cause was admitted for the disease either by the mother or child, who was small for her age, and not arrived at puberty.  I am, Sir, your obedient servant, W. G. BACOT, M.R.C.S. Blandford, Dorset, Sept. 1860.
