Additional professional details

I hear that Mrs. Coles has been appointed Sister-in-Charge for the Home for Special Probationers in connection with St. Bartholomew's Hospital, and that her election to the post has caused the greatest pleasure and satisfaction. I am told that Mrs. Coles was one of the first Special Probationers admitted into the Home, over which she will now preside, and that she was for some time the Sister-in-Charge of the similar department at King's College Hospital, so that she brings to her new post not only personal knowledge of Probationer's wants and wishes, but also considerable experience in superintending their home life
