Proposal to Create a Botanical Garden, Dated 1774

Proposal to Create a Botanical Garden signed by many of the influencial men associated with the Hospital's early history - Dated 1774. Though this proposal was accepted, the Garden was not planted at the time due to financial constraints. However, in 1976, as a part of the Nation's bicentennial celebration, the Physic Garden was planted in front of the Pine Building's West Wing in the spirit of the original proposed garden.
