Mr. Garraway left an Estate to it, near Arundel in Sussex, of above 700l. a Year: Whose Picture, in grateful Memory of him, is set up in the great Hall by Mr. Treasurer.

One Mr. Bacon gave a considerable Estate in Reversion, in case of the Death of Two Relations.

Sir John Frederick, Sir Robert Clayton, Sir John Moore, Mr. Morice, Noble Benefactors, we have mentioned before: And a great Number more might be mentioned.

And by the Bounty of the City, to increase the wealthy Estate thereof, it hath allowed this House the Benefit of looking after, and Licensing the Carts of London; the whole Care and Ordering whereof belongs to it. There are 420 Carts allowed in the City: Each of which pays a certain small Sum of Sealing.

Revenues belonging to this Hospital.
