[215a.] DEED of MORTIFICATION by GEORGE HUTCHESONE of Lambhill, whereby he mortified and disponed a tenement of land on the north side of the High Street, bewest the old West Port, to be edified and made a perfect hospital for entertainment of poor, aged, and decrepid men to be placed therein, for entertainment of whom he assigned to the patrons of the hospital 20,000 merks, to the effect that the annual rent thereof might be bestowed within the hospital on as many aged and decrepid men as the annual rent could afford, each man having four shillings Scots a day, and a gown of convenient colour every year, with elding sufficient in the hospital, summer and winter, for their convenient residence therein. He further gave directions as to the building of the hospital, and nominated and constituted the provost, bailies, dean of guild, and deacon-convener, with the ordinary ministers of Glasgow, and their successors in office, patrons of the hospital. He further declared the benefits of the mortification to be for old decrepid men, being merchants, craftsmen, or any other trade without distinction, above fifty years of age, who had been honest of life and conversation, and were known to be destitute of all help and support at the time of their entry. The founder estimated that the 20,000 merks assigned by him would yield an annual rent of 1600 merks, whereof if eleven aged men were appointed, £800 Scots would yield each four shillings a day, and the remaining 400 merks would be available for their clothes and elding. He also recommended that one of their number should read prayers morning and evening, besides their resort to the common prayers and preaching in the Laigh Tron Kirk. Glasgow, 16 December 1639.
