Jenny Lind's Hospital

[Douglas W Jerrold] *


Letter, Spoof


Hospitals, Patronage, Music

    Notes Jenny Lind's donation of £1776 15s to Brompton Hospital for an extension of the building. Suggests that the new construction be called 'The Nightingale Wing'—an allusion to Lind's appellation as the 'Swedish Nightingale'.
