Editor Cherokee Scout,
Murphv. N. C.
Dear Sir: ?
Believing as I do that a County
Hospital would he a great asset to
our county as well as being greatly
needed. I am personally interested
in securing this hospital.
I have found the people unani
mously in favor of securing this
public hospital where I have been,
but unfortunately the rumor is being
circulated that Haywood County
Hospital is a burden instead of an
asset and 1 took the liberty to write
the hospital authorities. The letters
both mine and their reply are at
tached and I will be very glad if you
will publish these letters, they will
clear up any misunderstanding that
might have been caused from these
I wish to emphasize the fart that
XVaynesville, the location of their
hospital is around 40 miles from
Asheville, where the roads are con
creted and less than an hour will
?et them into Asheville where many
hospitals are located, while Chero
kee is 80 miles from any hospital
and our county joins Graham, Clay
and the Georgia counties are just as
inaccessible to a hospital as ours
and would naturally be served by
our county hospital.

Dear Sir: ?
There is a growing sentiment in
this county for a bond issue for the
erection of a County Hospital along
the line of the one you have in your
county. We are, as you know some
what isolated from the rest of the
state and cannot always reaeh a hos~
pital in time with our patients.
We are anxious to put this propo
sition over, and for the sake of ar
gument, we would like to know
something first-hand as to whether
the proposition will be a liability
or an asset. W e feel that if wc can
assure our people that the maintain
ance will not be too burdensome, j
we are in a position to get it over. ?
Therefore, may I ask that you give j
me some of \our observations along j
this line, and what we might expect
as the institution grows and gains in
Thanking you in advance for any
information, I beg to remain.

My Dear Mr. Mauney: ?
Your letter of August 29 acknow
ledged. and we are very glad, in
deed, to give you any information
concerning our hospital.
We have been open eight months, j
Our operating expenses have been j
about equal to our cash receipts. Of I
course the first three or four months i
there was a great deficiency but the '
past four months have nearly made
up this deficiency of our first three
months of operation.
We, of course, use graduate nurs
t s for bedside nursing which elimi
nates the expense of training nurses.
Mv opinion is that the first year of
operating a hospital is much more
expensive than after a hospital has
been organized for a long period of
Should you be interested in com
ing over to see us, we would be glad
