LETTERS.
Broadway June 13th 1861.
In reply to your note of the 12th inst., respecting my transmission from Killinick to the Poor House 
Hospital, of George TATE, a man who has sustained a severe injury by falling from a horse, I beg that 
you will inform the Board that on inquiry I found Tate had no funds to pay for his conveyance to the 
County Infirmary, and, therefore, as no person would bring without payment, I had no alternative 
save that of availing myself of the Union.
As it is highly probable similar cases my frequently arise, I shall be glad if you will take the Boardís 
instructions, and inform me of them for my future guidance. George TATE avows himself a pauper, 
and proved it by being unable to pay for his board and lodging at the house in which he received 
shelter on the night of the accident.
P. S. WADDY, M.O.
