A letter of appreciation for the donation from The Daily News Orphans' Christmas Cheer Fund in 1915 gives an insight into life at the Victoria Hospital for Infectious Diseases:
'I have to acknowledge with grateful thanks the cheque to the value of £1 0s. 6d…for the purpose of brightening the Christmas tide of those unfortunate children at the Infectious Hospital…The Christmas passed off very satisfactorily, and the gifts that we were enabled to purchase were very much appreciated by the children, numbering close to 40 in the respective wards.Letter, 5 January 1916 published in The Daily News 2 December 1916'
