also six all-wool blankets. A dozen blankets are

patients sleeping on beds without sheets, and asked
us to make a list of needed linens that he might
supply. A recent gift of $100 has made it possible
for us to have new cement floors in our dispensary

from time to time with an eye toward using it in
the new hospital in the near future.
In every department of the work we feel the
restraint of cramped space and limited equipment.
We feel that the Women’s Work in Bahrein has
reached the stage where institutional work must be
developed. It is no longer the pioneer work that
it was ten years ago, and the needs that were
pointed out last year are still here, greater than
ever before.
