THE RED CROSS SOCIETY. TO THE EDITOR.
SIR, — With reforenoe to a sub 'leader in your issue of last nieht headed " The Bod Cross," in whioh yon state that yon hopo that the ladios of Wellington will form a Bod Cross Sooiety, you are apparently under ihe impression that bo far nothing haa been done in this matter. I may point out that I have here 13 trained nurses under the Bod Cross, with a matron who has herself seen servioe in tho fiold under the same flag, and I have also 14 men belonging to the Wellington City Guards who not only know tho "first aid to the wounded," bnt havo thoroughly learnt the whole of tho stretohor drill as prescribed by the rules of tho Ordor of St. John of Jerusalem. As the nucleus is already formed, I shall be happy to enroll any ladies undor tho flag, and to teaoh thorn all that ia necessary for them to learn. In the event of war being declared, an asylum for all women and children oould bo provided with the Hospital at an hour's notice, with the Bod Cross flag over their heads, whioh, I need scarcely Bay, ia already made. I beliovo Dr. Robinson, of Lyttelton, haa taken tho same stopß as I have. I am, &0., Maueice CniLTON, Snrgeon, Supt. Wellington Hoßnital. lßt May, 1885.
