NEW YORK.New York City.
Bellevue and the other city hospitals had a red-letter day on Christmas, owing to the
liberality, it is said, of Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt, who, desiring to show
her gratitude for the recovery of her husband from typhoid fever, sent a check
for $500, to provide good things for the patients on Christmas.
