The Care of the Feeble-Minded


This important development of philanthropy is making headway in a very remarkable manner. The Lancashire and Cheshire Society for the Permanent Care of the Feeble-minded met in Manchester in May, when Miss Dendy, who has given great impetus to this particular association, addressed those present in a long, interesting speech, which was fully reported in the Manchester Guardian. Miss Dendy intimated contributions to the sum of £1750, with further conditional promises. It was further stated, at the meeting of the Homes of Industry for Feeble-minded Girls, that the earnings of the inmates of the two homes already in operation, amounted to £312 out of an aggregate income of £994.
