Dr. Frauenthal, the Founder of Joint Disease Hospital, To Be Welcomed by Sixty Patients.
Sixty almost helpless cripples, twenty-six of them children, in the Hospital for Deformities and Joint Diseases, at No. 1,919 Madison avenue, will to-day welcome the return of Dr. Henry W. Frauenthal, of No. 783 Lexington avenue, the director and founder. The children have been praying for Dr. Frauenthal's safe return since the first news of the Titanic disaster.
When a message was received late yesterday afternoon from Dr. Frauenthal, stating that he, his bride and his brother, Isaac Frauenthal, were safe on the Carpathia, the patients told Miss S. A. Barden, the superintendent, that they would like to make some demonstration.
When in the city Dr. Frauenthal visits the hospital between nine and ten o'clock each day. It has been assumed that he will follow his custom, and the patients will be taken in wheeled chairs to the verandas to watch for his approach, which they will greet with cheers and the waving of handkerchiefs. An informal reception inside the hospital will follow.
Dr. Frauenthal, who founded the hospital five years ago and who has been very successful in the treatment of difficult cases, recently married Miss Clara Heinsheimer, of New York city and Far Rockaway. The wedding took place in Nice, France, on March 26.
