Medical Certificate from the Baltimore Alms House
A certificate signed on April 27, 1836, by the trustees of the Baltimore Alms House attests that James L. Cabell, M.D., had served in that institution for sixteen months as a medical resident. An engraved image on the certificate depicts a simply dressed man and woman—presumably two inmates in the institution—as they walk in front of the poorhouse.
