THE AMBULANCE ASSOCIATION.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir.,—ln reply to “C.’s” queries in your last night’s issue, I beg to state that the ambulance lectures advertised to commence on Friday next at the Garrison Hall have been arranged ,by the following Committee, approved at the public meeting held on December 7, 1888—viz., His Honor Mr Justice Williams, Lieut.-Colonel Wales, Drs Brown, Maunsell, and Colquhoun, Inspector Weldon, Mr Loring (New Zealand Railways), Captain Robertson (City Fire Brigade), Messrs Crosby Smith and H. M. Marshall.
Until arrangements in course of negotiation for affiliating the society with that of St John’s, England, are completed, the name assumed can he of little consequence, the objects of the society, whatever the designation, being the same—viz , the diffusion of simple, elementary knowledge for rendering first aid to injured persons, That there is a want for such teaching as these lectures provide cannot be denied, as those best acquainted with the subject well know the immense amount of suffering, delayed recoveries, and even loss of life constantly occurring for want of the necessary knowledge to render timely
assistance, a person possessed of such knowledge being often able to do more before than a doctor can do afterwards. Thanking “C.’’for the opportunity of bringing the claims of the society under the notice of your readers in this way—l am, etc., W. B. Fihiiek, Hon. Sec. ]>ro tern.
