On February 23, 2008, the Boston Globe reported that "Children's Friend & Service, an antipoverty group [and a Rhode Island Charity], is suing Rhode Island Hospital to force it to honor the bequest of a woman who donated $4,000 to the hospital in her will . . . before she died in 1912."  The article reports that an employee of the Charity unearthed the bequest searching through the Charity's archives in preparation for the Charity's 175th anniversary.  See Boston Globe for full article.
