* These cases were chiefly phthisical.

t Of the 231 discharged from the registers for non-attendance, from the nature of the entries respecting them, two thirds, it seems, were at the time of their last attendance, either recovering, or not affected with complaints of a fatal or grave nature; but either neglected to present themselves to be discharged on their recovery, or for various reasons discontinued attendance. The remaining third were patients labouring apparently under disorders of a fatal nature (a large proportion being phthisical); and who, probably from the advanced stage of the disorders, were unable longer to come to the Hospital, or at the time of their discharge from the register had already died, but whose deaths were never reported to the

medical officers.

613 * The number of admissions in any one month is not determined solely by the greater or less prevalence of illness, but by other circumstances also, as the facility in obtaining recommendations for admissions, which is not the same at all seasons of the year, and the state of the weather being favourable or unfavourable for the conveyance of patients to the Hospital. The number of admissions is always lower in September, in consequence of the subscribers having then, for the most part, exhausted their recommendations; an unfortunate circumstance,

since at this season so much illness usually prevails. In the present year, the admission of
