The editor is under obligations to the many officers of charitable institutions and associations for aid in gathering data and for furnishing information; and especially he would acknowledge the assistance given by Dr. Samuel C. Busey, president of the Medical Society of the District of Columbia; and to Dr. C. B. Purvis, for many years the surgeon-in-chief of Freedmen's Hospital, and also the physician of the Association for the Relief of Destitute Colored Women and Children.
Since the report of the joint select committee was made to Congress the following changes in District charities have occurred: A permanent central committee for the relief of the poor, consisting of thirty persons, has been appointed by the Commissioners of the District of Columbia. The committee will become an incorporated body, and will administer the inaugural and other funds for the relief of the poor. The detail of a police officer as agent of the Humane Society has been withdrawn in accordance with the joint committee's report. The Garfield Memorial Hospital has consented to have an isolating building constructed on its grounds, and a second such building will be built at the Providence Hospital. The Columbia Hospital has taken steps to allow physicians not on the hospital staff to attend patients in pay rooms, and also to limit the admission of free patients to persons actually dependent.
