pp.50-51 The Auckland Dispensary
The explanation offered for this establishment is as a place of respite for the sick and dying, and because of the distance required to travel for medical care by both Maori and Pakeha. Requests contributions for the construction and maintenance of the hospice, for patient care and for medicinal supplies. Lists the Governor as the Chairman, and Te Keneri as the Treasurer, with a committee of 22.
