TREAT.MENT OF THE PATIENTS. � Yesterday, at 12 o'clock, purauaht to notice, a general, and very numerous, meeting of the Governors of this flospitnl was held, in the Board Room, for the purpose of" inquiring into the rrnlh of certain statements which have appeared in ilie Mnrvirts ChrnjiicU^ arid other papers, relative to a Coroner's Intjuest on the bttc John Hammond, who died in fhe hospital." Among the Governors present were the Earl of Rosslyn, Dr. Holland, Dr. Chalmers, Mr. House. .'Mr. Nessy, Dr. Bell, Gregory, Air. Sleigh. Mr. Bebcr, Mr. Fuller, and other gentlemen of eminence in the medical profctaion. Dr. Holland having been voted to the Chair, Air. Ol-nmiwo, the Hospital Secretary, read tha minutes of the last Court of Governors, recommending the calling of this public meeting, and the adoption of other measures necessary for toe removal of any charges against tbe conductors and surgeons of the Institution. The CnAiuMAS inquired, the reculi of the corrcipo.idciice or. dered between the Secretary, the Coroner, and Dr. Bell, on the sub-jcci of UaJimoUd's cise. Mr. GuNXtXO replied he had, as directed by the Board of Governors, had a coinmonicaiion with Air. Higga, Uic Coroner, from whom he received, the foUowing letter : - " Cloisters, H'estminsier Abbey, July 28, 1825. " Sir,-1 have received your letter of the 'ZTth mst. I do r.olic-coUect what Is reported in the Moniing Chrm'icU of tbe 26tli. 1 have nothing to do with the newspapers, and seldom read any, excepting the Herald. I cannot be required 10 anstter questions. " 1 feel much obliged by the Governors' ofler to heat tneifl have any compl&int to make. Were 1 in the habit of visiting patients in the Hospital, and I saw any ihin� inipropcr, I would not hesitate in bringing it before the Board. With respect to the case of JohnHamraond (to which yoti paniculariy allfide), 1 would recommend tho Commilieeto question his late master, Mr. Bailey, of Thomas's Hotel, Berkely-square, and >evcral of .Mr. Bailey's Bcrvauts, who visited the deceased during his confinement. I am. Sir, your very ohed/eot hutnble servant, " THOMAS lUGGS. " Joseph Gunning, Esq. Secretary." The Chaibmav said he undOTfood Afr. Higgs was requested to attend the meeting. Mr. GuKKiKO explained that that request had been forwarded to Mr. Higgs, but as he had no opinion to offer, and as he bad no. thing whatever to do with newspapers, he considered he could not be expected to make him.self a party in any investigation concern, -ing any statement which they published, for which they were amenable, and not him. He alsopbje.-tetl to attending on the coii. sideralion that be had only performed his duty as a public officer, and the question was not by any means part of his jurisdiction. The Chairman saggestetl the propriety of another application to Air. Higga for a copy of ibe depositions. Air. GiiNiJiva then read the answer of A/r. Bell (the surgeon-who was described in the inquest as having been consulted on the case of Hammond by bis friends, and to have given an opinion tantamount to a charge of gross neglect, and unskilful and improper treatrnenl by the surgeons of the hospital), which is as follows :- Sir,-I am entirely ignorant of the circumstantre to which yoii allude, unless tt refers 10 what 1 read yesterday in the Mcrnivg Chronicle ; nor do 1 remember to have expressed any opinion on that subject. '� Be pleased to tdl tnc of whom this Committee is composed ; for if the object is to icpel the calumnies eipress�l in the ncwj-papors, I shall consider myself bound to attend. " I am, Sir, &c " CHAR1,E.S BELL. " Mr. Gunning, Secretary, St. George's Hospital." The Sechetart said this was the result of the correspondenca nhich had taken place. Mr. PiTafAK, the House Surgeon,(under whose care anti direction the deceased Hammond was) here came forward, and hoped the Governors would by erery means or examinations in their power ascetiain whether the chBrges against him, iodiTtduaUy, and the QoveTOors of the Hospital generally, were founded in fact, or otherwise. (He�T.) H� sras most anxious for the fuUesit Invtjtlgatioo, and he was confldtnt that the result wjuld prove the (orgical treatment to here btm the same pursued in all inch cases'.' lUr.

He did so, and in my capaciry as Jorin-1 asked the'snrgtoo wile-ther he had taker up any of the ar(eries or not, or whether he bad applied any leeihcs. He positively swore he had, and it is to be provetl that he did not." {A considerable sensation was here ma-oifesi among the Governors.) The CH.vibman het� asked Mr. Bailey as to the substance of his charges. Air. BaILET said, if i( irx� considered a charge he would stare his opinion to be, that the bandage should never have been on at ail. CbatBHan-From the report of theJnqoI?s}, ft appears that you have asserted that the medical men neglected their duty,-that........,,.....,,, ........^ ....aj.,,..., vvm,^....u, the deceased was never washed, (hat he yas phiced in dirty sheets, [ had knotvn. tJiat.ihe practice was as guod'in Su George and put inio the bed where a person had Just died.. '  ..... ..... Mr. iJAfLEV-In the report of the Inquest things have been Bsciibed to niy utterance whicli I never spoke. But with renpect to your question, I do know that tbe dere.\j.ed complained of not baying clean sheets until within a day or two of his death. He complained also of not being wa.shed; and I know towels and soap ai^d some of my linen were sent from my house to hun. One of niy servants washed him; and at imother time the nurse refused to alloiy bim to be w��hed by direction OTthe surgeon. Here wme desultory remarks pa.�sed between the Governors on the "subject of Mr. Bailey's statemtM, .Mr. OhEOOfiv. a Goreroor, asked him why he did not cause him to be removed from the Hospital ? or why he had not taken such steps, by opplying 10 iheGoremors, as would have procured an inquiry which woulo bale aived the dedcasod'rlife. .�yii. BaM-ev said he did notconsider ha bid any such influence as to cause the removal of a patient from a poblic Insiitutitm ; and if at any of the times when he called at Ihe Hospital he could have seen the House Surgeon, he would have ajked him the necessary questions upon the case, Afr. Geeqoht-The man was six weeks all but two days ih the Hospital, and you did nothing W save his life. Perhaps you can tell us what arwry was cut ? Air. Bailet-1 positively say there tras no artery cut. A(r. GnEGORV-You were Foreman of the Jury ? Mr. Bailey-I was, sir. Air. OiLEnoiiY-You ore a medical man ? ' Jlr. Bailey-I am not, sir. Here rather a confused interruption took pbcc, a Mr. Sleigh, a Governor anci surgeon, considtring that some iosinitations had been, or were about to be made, upon him. However, that did not appear 10 be the case, ond-'the coiloqiiy dropped. Air. GojioonT to Air. Bailey-Vou, 1 believe, had one of Lizsr's anatomical plates at the Inquest ? Air. Sleigh opposed the question as irrelevant. The CiiaibuaV interposed, and asked .'\Ir. Bailey whom he had consulted on the case of H sihmbiid ?' Air. Bailet replied solemnly lud consulted no meiiicaj man whacevei, and he odI^ formed his (ipifllon upon his own knowledge of tbe science of medicine and sufg^uol.treatment. Air. Bell here came forward and"aaid,.he hail never heen consulted by Air. Bailey, and indeed ISe'had'never �een him before. Mr. GBEGoaT detjiandedof Mr. Bailey whence he had obtained Lizor's anammical plates ? ' Sir. Bailet-Really:, Sir, this is an odd qcesiifin; but if you wish to kiiow my answer Is, ihat Jt bought.and paid for them, mid I must say that it'la any gentleman of this Committee if I had taken my whole library to the Jnq_qe8t. Another desultory conversation upon th? question of regularity of proceeding arose between Col. Homell, Air. Bebcr, !\lr. Sleigh, and Mr. Gregory, which was ended by iLvbeing decided the Committee would then receive Air. Baiiejr's evidence. Ann Hamilton, a servant in his family, was then tailed and examined, who deposed to having seen the deceased Eve or tixiimos while in the Hospital; he complained of his knee being so lightly bound up, that he was in dreaaful pain. During the several times she saw htm, he wna only once fit to be seen as a patient ought to be ; his shitt, sheets, and every netaaisary about him, was filthjr, and dirty; coming close to him was impossible, from the intolerable smell. He complained to witness of not having been ivashed. She went to the nurse and told her ; but the nurse said the Sur. geona would not permit it, as It disturbed him much-The young woman did not vary in her ^atement, although closely questioned by several of the Governors. Mary Howard, housemaid to Air. Bailey, visited deceased fre. quently ; saw him nine times prcvioos to his death; he often complained of a want of clean linen, and of Pot being washed as often as he could wish. Witness did not think it necessary to remonstrute with-the puiaes or any other person belonging to the csmblishment on that poipl; wimtas once oJl'eted to procure water from a doset 10 wash dectaaed's batida and arms, agreeable to his express re. quest, but was reproved by the nutse for so doing, who said-ihst it was the doctor's orders he should not be disturbed. "H'itness did not mention the foulness of the deceased's appearince to her mistress until after ht'daah. The deceased had lold her that after the tuuidagewu taken-off tbe knee, he ibuad � great deal less pain than before. Never heard him express a wish to be removed from the Hospital, exispt in � general way, when he on --', V..-k. T-c I.vorid.iv W'.i: Till- Janet, ca o'x The Lc-.-a-.:.
