British Beneficent Institution

British Beneficent Institution, 63, Lincoln's Inn Fields, established 1850, for granting permanent annuities to the widows and unmarried daughters of persons who have moved in superior stations in society. They must be above 55 years of age, and their income not exceed 30. 46 ladies have already been elected to a pension of 30. Applications are daily made on behalf of those who have moved in the first classes of society.

The income during the past year was 1,680 annuity, derived from voluntary contributions; but great difficulty has been experienced for some time in meeting the claims of the annuitants.

Bankers, Messrs. Coutts and Co., Strand.—Secretary, Mr. W. Berkeley Beatty.
