Administrative HistoryIn comments to his section XIII, "Minutes and Accounts", Bain notes: "The earliest account book began on seventh February 1800 and ended in December 1885. [This book is no longer among the Hospital's papers.] There are, however, separate accounts preserved for some years, particularly on account of Principal Chalmers' intromissions from 1st January 1760 to January 1800 [MS 3861/4/5 item 3]".
