[Fever Hospital, Whitechapel]

A committee has been formed for the purpose of opening a fever hospital in the vicinity of the Commercial road, Whitechapel; the London Fever Hospital at Battlebridge being found totally incapable of accommodating those persons who are generally, at this season of the year, affected in the dense population of Whitechapel, Spitalfields, and Bethnal green. The committee, we are happy to observe, consists, among others, of the following influential persons : Archbishop of Canterbury, Bishops of London and Llandaff, Lord Mayor, Aldermen Thompson and Venables, Drs. Birkbeck and S. Smith.
