Bolton Almshouses

Present to Bolton by Dr Chadwick
Dr Chadwick, who formerly resided and practised at Bolton, has intimated his intention of making a munificent present to the town. He intends to offer 10,000 to be applied to the erection of working-men's model cottages, the rentals from which are to be devoted to the maintenance of an orphanage which he proposes to erect. In the first instance, the orphanage will be for the admission of girls, but it will be ultimately extended so as to receive boys; and to carry out this benevolent design a sum of about 17,000 will be necessary.
