(To THE EDTIOR or THE " Sracrwrou."1 SIR,—The call upon our funds in this nineteenth year of our existence promises to be greater than ever. Applications are flowing in, but we must soon cease to respond to them unless our supporters come forward generously, as they often do when you allow me to-appeal to them through your columns. The benefit derived from the few days' respite from work and home cares is very great for those women whom we send away for a week or two to the seaside or country, and the manner in which they express their appreciation of it is sometimes very touching. All contribute something, many a considerable sum, towards their expenses. A few shillings spared for our fund will be well spent and gratefully acknowledged by the Secretary, 76 Denison House, Vauxhall Bridge Road; the Treasurer, A. S. Daniell, Esq., Fairchildes, Warlingbam, Surrey; or by Mrs. Frank Pownall, 7F Bickenhall Mansions, W. I enclose Report for 1913.—I am, Sir, &c., HELEN T. Pow NALL
