1832 BallygungeInstitution Rules and Orders relative to The Native Hospital and the Dependent Dispensaries Baptist Mission Press: Calcutta, 1832 At the meeting of the Governors of the Native Hospital, held on the 29th Nov, 1831, Sir Edward Ryan proposed , that on account of the depressed state of the funds of the Select Vestry, the Native Hospital should, for the future, bear the charge of the Leper Establishment at Bulliah Ghant, and that Messrs Nicolson and Martin be requested, in concert with Dr Jackson (the gratuitous medical attendant) to submit a plan for the Leper Institution, as a subordinate branch to the Native Hospital. The transfer was finally ordered on the 16th Feb, 1832, when an Establishment was … and the site of the Institution was removed to an open space near the Portuguese Burial Ground – a situation in all respects more accessible and airy than the last, and having the advantage of two good tanks. The Leper Asylum is indebted for its original Establishment to the late Mr Harrington, Member of Council, who, in the year 1811, secured a piece of ground at Ballygunj, repaired a tank, and erected buildings capable of containing forty persons. In 1812, Mr Harrington on leaving the country transferred the Establishment to the Select Vestry, to whose finds he was also a liberal contributor. The individuals residing in the Asylum are supplied with cots and furnished annually with blankets and coarse cloth for clothing. Several of the Lepers have near relatives living with them, the assistance of whom for obvious reasons is always encouraged, and they likewise are supplied with cots, blankets, and clothing.
