memorial from the East Sussex Medico-Chirurgical Society

Memorial: side 1 Memorial: side 2

This memorial, addressed to the Chairman &
Directors of the Hastings Baths Company [sic]
by the East Sussex Medico-Chirurgical Society,

Sheweth, That whereas an extensive bathing establishment is in course of erection, in
which no arrangements have been ^ hitherto made
for the construction of any Turkish or vapour
Baths, and whereas the absence of any
such Baths has in many individual
instances obliged invalids to leave the
Town in quest of such Baths, or has pre-
vented their coming to Hastings,
and whereas their consideration of this
question came under the especial
consideration of a Meeting of the above
Society held on 4th May 1880

This Society hereby calls the attention
of the Chairman & Directors of their Baths
Company to the same, and urges
upon them the desirability of rendering
the Bathing Establishment complete
by the erection of Turkish & Vapour
Baths, believing that such steps will
be for the advantage of the Town & of
Visitors frequenting it.

Signed in behalf of theSignature
above Society in accordance
with a resolution passed
at their meeting 4th May 1880


Memorial in support of the installation of Turkish baths at White Rock by the East Sussex Medico-Chirurgical Society to the Hastings & St Leonards Public Baths & Aquarium Co Ltd on 4 May 1880. Since the memorial is not on the society's headed paper, it seems likely that this is a copy, signed, for the minutes book.
