were 38 babies at this time and there
‘ was no place to locate them.” Mrs.
Corbett stated that she combed the

er agreed to house the infants in his
elaborate stables. The neighbors
received and helped care for theee in

About three yearn ago, she said, these
babies were removed to London.
In 1940 Mrs. Corbett became Ma
tron of John Groom’s Cripple-league
in London. This hospital had several
buildings on extensive grounds where
300 crippled girls and women lived.

finally evacuated to central England.

the English people only achieved the

community has made possible our
Chowan County Hospital, and it is
my earnest desire to be present at the
opening of our beautiful new build
