  The above entry was recorded on 29th April 1892:
"Admitted one girl this week. Find that many of the little ones are suffering with the whooping cough".
An unintentionally amusing reference on a very serious subject appears in this entry written in the log book on 23rd November 1894, when the teacher refers mistakenly to 'children-pox' instead of chicken-pox !
