BRACERS Record Detail
To access the original letter, email the Ready Division.
The document is an affidavit from Mary Lyle Gilchrist, the Municipal Medical Officer of Health.
Gilchrist talks about her visits to Beacon Hill, stating, "I have never seen the school in a dirty disgusting or insanitary condition and I saw nothing of which one could complain." She states that the children were clean and sufficiently fed. "On my visits to the school I saw no sign of drunkenness or loose behaviour, indeed I saw no signs of drink in the house at all, although I visited the school when Lady Russell was not aware that I was coming."
