    The London Hospital Archives might turn up one or two. My daughter and I once spent a day looking for various names. Has anyone been through them looking specifically for addresses rather than names?

        I have always held strong opinions regarding Gerald, and the more I think the matter over, the stronger do these opinions become. The truth, however, will never be known, and did indeed, at one time lie at the top of a fruit tree, if my conjections be correct!

          OK. If you stand on my shoulders, Gerald, you should be able to reach the lowest branch.
