| Mary Hurly, aged 23 years, a victim of leprosy, died in
the County Infirmary Limerick, on Sunday last. This disease, it appears, she
contracted by washing the clothes of some foreign sailors. The malady was
malignant. In Ireland formerly every corporate city had its regal grants for a
Leper Hospital—and the lands of the Limerick Leper House were very extensive.
In Waterford the annual grants of land are still appropriated to the support of
the medical institutions, even yet called “The Leper Hospital,” and in that
county, consequently, there is no county infirmary.
