The Chelsea Home

The Chelsea Home, Manor House, Smith Street, King's Road, Chelsea, may possibly be searched for in the present chapter, but its proper place would be following the Hospital for Consumption. It is established under the sanction and with the aid of that institution, as a shelter for its outpatients and others waiting for admission, or after leaving hospital.

The inmates are received for periods varying generally from one to six months. The management of their needful expenses is left to each individual; in addition to the furnished lodging, house-linen and firing are provided; but all are expected to maintain themselves by their own resources; and the Committee of Management are grateful for the employment of the inmates at needlework.

Treasurer, P.F. O'Malley, Esq., Q.C., 7, Lowndes Square.
Honourary Secretary, Miss Marston, 23, Hans Place.
