"THE ROYAL VICTORIA HOSPITAL
FEMINA FECIT

THE BOARD OF MANAGEMENT OF THE ROYAL VICTORIA HOSPITAL ON 18TH JUNE
DESIRES TO RECORD THE PROFOUND SORROW WITH WHICH IT HAS HEARD
OF THE UNEXPECTED DEATH OF VISCOUNT PIRRIE. THE SAD TIDINGS
WHEN FLASHED OVER SEA AND LAND STARTLED THE CIVILIZED WORD FOR
IT WAS EVERYWHERE RECOGNIZED THAT A COSMOPOLITAN PERSONALITY
HAD PASSED OFF THE STAGE OF TIME. LANGUAGE FAILS TO EXPRESS ADEQUATELY THE UNIQUE POSITION OCCUPIED BUY THE DECEASED PEER IN THE SHIPBUILDING AND COMMERCIAL LIFE OF MANLKIND. BUT THE CITIZENS OF BELFAST. WHERE HIS MAMMOTH VESSELS WERE BUILT CAN APPRECIATE POSSIBLY BETTER THAN MOST. THE GENIUS AND CAPACITY OFD THE MARVELLOUS BRAIN THAT NOW RESTS FROM ITS LABOURS BUT WHOSE SPLENDID IDEALS OF CRAFTSMANSHIP ARE STILL THE ENVY OF THOSE WHO PLAN AS WELL AS THOSE CO TO SEA IN SHIPS.
HIS OWN BUSINESS, HOWEVER, DID NOT EXHAUST HIS MANFOLD ENERGIES. THE DEBT THIS HOSPITAL OWES TO LORD AND LADY PIRRIE IS GENERALLY RECOGNIZED. FROM ITS INCEPTION WITHOUT INTERRUPTION THEY HAD TOGEHTER FOSTERED ITS INTERESTS WITH UNREMITTING CARE AND PRINCE.Y CENEROSITY.

THE BOARD REALISING THE GREAT LOSS IT HAS SUSTAINED, AND AT THE SAME TIME REMEMBERING THE GRIEF OF THE GRACIOUS LADY WHO HAS FOR LONG DISCHARGED WITH RARE EFFICIENCY AND ACCEPTANCE THE DUTIES OF PRESIDENT OF THIS HOSPITAL WOULD TENDER HER ITS RESPECTFUL SYMPATHY, ACCOMPANIED WITH THE PRAYER THAT GOD WILL UPHOLD AND COMFORT HER UNTIL THE DAY BREAKS AND THE SHADOW FLEE AWAY.
