"London, E. C. 4.
"Sir,-Since its foundation in London
in 1774 the Royal Humane Society has
carried out a threefold task; firstly, in
the education of persons against the
dangers of sea and inland waterways;
"secondly, in making awards to those
"who have saved or restored life in
"any part of the world where a British
citizen is concerned either as salvor
or saved; and thirdly, in the provision
'of life-saving apparatus in an around
"the Metropolis of London.
In the field of life-saving activities
awards nave been made for the direct
"saving cf 70,000 and for the restoia-
tion of many more. Awards made
"have included 90 gold medals, 1,231
"silver medals, 10,394 bronze medals

the north side of the Serpeniii e.

"The Society is faced with an annual
"deficit owing !o the increase of all
costss -and the high incidence of pur-

"work should be continued as in the
Past a considerable sum is irquired,
