Letter from the British Home for Incurables to Mr Evanion
Medium: Print on paper
The British Home for Incurables was founded in 1861 in Clapham to provide care for patients from the middle classes who were sick and disabled. It soon outgrew the original building and moved to new and larger premises in Streatham. Shortly before the new Home opened in June 1894, an appeal had been made for financial support to complete and furnish it. This letter to the stage magician, Evanion acknowledges his kind offer to contribute to the fund.
