The ALBERGO DE' POVERJ is an enormous poor-house, begun by Charles the Third, and not yet completed. It contains one thousand five hundred men and boys, and seven hundred women. […] There are likewise [at the poor-house] a Lancastrian school; a music school; schools for different arts; a theatre; a chapel; and a college, in which pensioners are admitted. The whole of the wards, as well for sleeping as for use during the day, are as clean as the best private house; the food is of a good quality; and the children well clothed and healthy. The boys are trained to arms, and the movements of the institution are conducted by beat of drum. […]  Mendicants are forced to enter into this establishment; a circumstance which keeps the streets of Naples tolerably clear; but the environs of the city teem with these worst of nuisances.
