Description: This is the title page from a ballad, "written especially for the Fancy Bazaar, for the benefit of the Floating Hospital and respectfully dedicated to Lady Howe, by F. W. N. Bayley, composed by J. Addison". The Floating Hospital was the 'Dreadnought', a converted warship that was moored in the Thames. For many years it acted as the Seaman's Hospital before a shore establishment was provided.
