The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - COMMENT -

Re­ports were sub­mit­ted at Cu­par Parish Coun­cil re­gard­ing the re­mark made at last meet­ing that sym­pa­thy had not been ex­tended to a girl pa­tient in the ph­thi­sis ward at Thorn­ton Poor­house. Ex-Bailie La­mond said, along with the clerk, he had vis­ited the poor­house and in­ter­viewed the girl. When he asked if they had been un­kind to her she replied: “Oh no, I can’t say that.” She said she was not sat­is­fied with the night­dresses and that eggs sup­plied were not as fresh as those she had got at home.
