Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,

Executive Department,

Harrisburg, April 9, 1903. To the Honorable, the House of Representatives of

Pennsylvania. Gentlemen:

I have the honor to advise you that I have this day approved and signed House bill No. 320, entitled "An act making an appropriation to the Medico-Chirurgical Hospital of Philadelphia," except as to the item appropriating $90,000 for maintenance, which is approved in the sum of $60,000, and I withhold my approval from the remainder of said item.

I approve the item making an appropriation of $200, 000 for the purpose of reconstructing and making additions and repairs to the hospital. While this is, to some extent, a reduction, it gives to the hospital one hundred and ten thousand dollars more than was appropriated to it two years ago, and the same amount as is appropriated to the hospital of the Jefferson Medical College, a like institution having the same necessities.
