On severing her connection with the Wellington Hospital, on the eve of her marriage, Miss Broadbent, the matron of the Victoria Hospital, was the recipient of presantations from both the women and men patients of that institution, the patients of the Seddon Annexe, and the nursing staff of the Wellington Hospital. The kindest wishes were expressed for her future, and were feelingly replied to by the recipient. ***** Two Napier nurses, Nurse Murray and Nurse Mcßeth, recently on the hospital staff, le*t last Saturday for England, where they intend undertaking nursing of wounded soldiers. Prior to their departure a "gift" afternoon was tendered to them by Mrs. Tattersall and Miss Waller. * * * * % We publish m this issue an account of Miss Maclean's work while abroad, which will prove most interesting to the nurses who remain here, as well as to the friends of those who have gone.
