WINDFALL FOR PRESTON INFIRMARY.

Alderman Davies's Generosity.

Alderman Davies, J.P., has given a sum of £2,000 unconditionally to the Preston Infirmary. In presenting the handsome donation Alderman Davies, writing to Mr. Park, from Carus Lodge, Lancaster, says: - Will you kindly inform the board of management of the Preston and County of Lancaster Royal Infirmary, of which you are the chairman, that I desire to give them the sum of £2,000 to be expended in connection with the institution in any way they may think proper as a memorial of my son, Dr. Herbert Davies, who died in South Africa in June last whilst doing duty as a civil surgeon at the front."

Alderman Davies is a director of the Ebbw Vale Steel, Iron, and Coal Company (Limited), and a member of the South Wales Colliers' Sliding-scale. His son was a member of the Welsh Hospital staff, and died of dysentery at Springfontein on June 15 last, a few days before Professor Jones.

(Evening Express, Friday 11th January 1901)
