City of London Lying-in Hospital, City-road, was instituted in 1750. This hospital, in 1809, had subsisted fifty-nine years; and had relieved, in that time, 24,902 poor married women, of whom 25,196 children had been born. Out of the whole number, 292 women have been delivered of twins, and two women had three children at the birth.
