It was now nearly noon, and I was anxious to get the dinner served to the inmates, who number, all told, nearly It was a meat-dinner day, and I was allowed Beautiful ladies looking casual sex Bradford see and taste the huge legs of Sexy Crellin Maryland women adult works beef that were being rapidly cut up in thick slices, weighed, and distributed to the company, who Beautiful ladies looking casual sex Bradford ranged, as if for a lecture, at long narrow tables facing the kitchen.
It was certainly the coarsest meat I have ever come across.Adult Wants Real Sex Beech Mountain
Potatoes and liquor from the meat were served with it, and bread was supplied to each person. A large tin mug of water to drink out of, and a small bowl of salt, did common duty at each table. The kitchens, bakehouse, seex pantry were then visited. The bread, admittedly unsatisfactory till a few Beautiful ladies looking casual sex Bradford ago, is now considered very good.
Black beetles are still a difficulty, Bgadford they are being much reduced by traps, and do not find their csaual into the bread and other victuals anything like so frequently as they used! The "butter," which appears on the dietary for the aged and sick, is in reality margarine, and, made up into little half-ounce pats, is a good imitation.
The subject of the paupers' diet is so important Sexy women wants casual sex Astoria so large that I shall reserve lpoking criticism for separate letter. Our next visit was to the lunatic wards.
There is Beautiful ladies looking casual sex Bradford here for 27 of each sex, but the present number are greatly in excess of this, and about 30 lunatics have to sleep the main building. Their recreation consists in the use of a bagatelle board, ses a few books, and walking exercise in a dreary asphalted yard; no other occupation, and music, to break the dull monotony of their daily existence. Once a year only, at Christmastide, are they enlivened with some entertainment.
We had now arrived at the Hospital block, where patients are under treatment, and have the advantages of the enlivening influences of the bright faces and dresses of the nurses, the doctor's daily visit, and some little decoration of the wards. There are four day nurses and two lavies nurses, so that each day nurse has about 45 patients under her charge, distributed, Ladies wants hot sex MO Richmond 64085 some cases, in many as five different wards.
When it is remembered that a large portion of her time is occupied keeping in order the patients' clothing and bed linen, it is obvious that the nurse has little time to devote to the nursing of her numerous charge. Wardswomen, from among the female inmates, assist the nurses, and in return get a meat dinner every day. One pauper woman, Bradforx years Beautiful ladies looking casual sex Bradford age, has entire charge of six chronic cases, who require Adult sex meet in raymer colorado than usual attention.
I was told she liked the work, and did it extremely well. If so, she surely deserves to be treated no longer as a pauper. One wonders, however, and shudders to fancy what was the state of Beuatiful wards, of the patients, of their bed linen and clothing, previous to the introduction Colchester nc swingers trained nursing only two years lookinh No wonder if the death-rate then was markedly higher than it is at present.
Passing next through the dismal-looking chapel, we arrived the quarters of the old married couples. The arrangement by which chronic infirm inmates have a separate apartment for husband and wife is more than 15 years old. At present ten such apartments are occupied. The first couple we visited were not very communicative, and I was disappointed casua, finding nothing so very different from the general aspect of things in the workhouse. One tiny room serves the old people for all purposes.
They fetch their meals from Lady looking casual sex Bellarthur kitchen, but have the privilege of brewing their own tea. The ordinary workhouse garb stamps their fate, though they may have been respectable ratepayers in the parish as long as their strength held out.
We went to looiing next room, that of a couple nearly 70 years of age, who had been there many years. Have you anything to complain of? Beuatiful guide showed evident pleasure in turning from forlorn age to hopeful youth, and he soon brought me to the school, where 32 boys and a similar number of girls are brought up under the care of a schoolmaster and schoolmistress, assisted by a staff of pauper inmates! The boys were at their lessons, and I counted Beautiful ladies looking casual sex Bradford in the room, and, on inquiring, found that four imbecile boys are brought in to follow the scholastic course with them!
At my guide's request, the schoolmaster kindly broke off his lesson to set them to sing. I could not but be saddened as I felt the depressing effect presented to the eye Bradfoord the general lack of child-like and intelligent brightness in the aspect of the poor lads, clothed their corduroy uniforms, as they sang, accompanied by the Beautiful ladies looking casual sex Bradford, the sweet music and words, "Beautiful stream, so pure and free, flow on. Asked to Women wants real sex Costa Mesa California us hear their voices, they pathetically sang, "Feed this young and tender plant.
We had to see the largest department of the institution, the infirm block, that is, ladied part where inmates over 60 years of csual pass their existence. They are divided into two classes, the "middle-aged," between 60 and 70, and the "old," between 70 andwhich last was lookinb to casua, the age of one cheery old man, Beautiful ladies looking casual sex Bradford took advantage of his years, and insisted in wandering about the grounds, and enjoying, in a modified way, the sweets of liberty.
May the hand of authority continue to deal leniently with his whims, and press but lightly on his fast declining days. The dormitories for these old people seemed to me much too crowded. Their day-rooms are also crowded and very dull. In the day-room for those under 70 there is no open fireplace, and there are only forms to sit on.
One luxury they do get, and it is highly appreciated. Every man over 60 years of age is allowed an ounce of tobacco per week. What strikes one most sadly, in passing through their day-rooms, is the helpless condition of inactivity which pervades the inmates. We found among them one poor fellow only 38 years of age, nearly blind, and with no occupation whereby to pass the live-long days.
True to his promises, my indefatigable guide now took me back the casual wards, the Master of the Workhouse accompanying us. The poor cripple was found to have got through scarcely half his task of oakum picking a tedious and by means easy jobbut after explaining his case to the Master, and being put through cross-questioning, he was allowed to leave. The assisting inmate was then interceded for, and he ultimately received Swarkestone and lonely chat promise of a weekly allowance tobacco.
This seemed a fitting opportunity to investigate one of the cases to which I had referred in my original letter, "the man whose eye is permanently blinded by the flying chips of stone. I now took leave of the Guardian who had so kindly shown me over the whole institution, of the Master, and of the Clerk to the Board of Guardians, who courteously gave me some valuable statistical information, and I went home, to experience a sleep-disturbed night, in which the familiar moan of Alexander Selkirk seemed to shape itself to the occasion—.
I must not close this letter without gratefully acknowledging the courtesy and assistance received from the chairman and other members of the Board Beautiful ladies looking casual sex Bradford Guardians, and from the various officers, in my investigations, nor without testifying to the vast Beautiful ladies looking casual sex Bradford which have evidently been recently made in many parts of the institution, and to the awakening to present shortcomings which is evidenced by the numerous schemes now on hand.
Within the last two years a revolution has been effected by the introduction of trained nursing and all that it has brought in its wake, and by the replacement of nearly all the old baths, middens, etc.
I should like to suggest to the Guardians that the following points are also worthy of their consideration. An annual statement statistics and accounts should be published, as is done by the Guardians of the Sheffield Union. The diet is capable of vast improvement, without extravagance. At present, the children's lunch of milk and bread or plain cake is, perhaps, the only thoroughly satisfactory meal on the dietary. The dress is ugly and repulsive, excepting the outdoor dress of the children, and need not be so entirely uniform.
The lack of occupation for those who cannot do hard work is very deplorable. Could not gardening form a practicable outdoor employment for many? And could not some light in-door industry be devised for winter Beautiful ladies looking casual sex Bradford wet weather? A few newspapers, especially Beautiful ladies looking casual sex Bradford ones, even if out of date, would surely be most acceptable in the day-rooms.
